French coach Didier Deschamps cited illness as the cause of the defeat.

France lost to Argentina after a close penalty shoot-out in the 2022 Qatar World Cup final held at Lusail Stadium in Qatar at 0:00 am (Korean time) on the 19th. France, the ‘defending champion’, tried to win two tournaments in a row, but unfortunately failed.

France played a difficult game from the start. He conceded two goals to Argentin only in the first half, and his first shot did not come until the 20th minute of the second half. Overall, the bodies of the players were heavy, and some players in particular were not helpful to the team at all. 스포츠토토

In fact, many bad things happened to France ahead of the final. Theo Hernandez and Olivier Giroud are injured, while Rafael Varane and Ibrahima Konate are out of training due to illness. The same was true for Dayot Upamecano and Kingsle Komang.

Fortunately, on the day of the match, the main players were able to start, but it was difficult to show 100% performance. Deschamps also cited this as the reason for the defeat. The British media ‘Guardian’ said, “Deschamps confessed that the disease had a physical or psychological effect on the players.

Also, France took less 24 hours off than Argentina. In many ways, it was advantageous to Argentina. However, Deschamps neatly admitted defeat, saying, “There is no excuse for our defeat.”

On the other hand, regarding his future, he replied, “Even if we had won today, I would not have answered that question. I will meet with the president of the French Football Federation early next year.”
