France ended up suffering because Germany has that ability to hold on to the games no matter how badly it paints things. However, especially during the first half, those of Deschamps they dominated the duel with an iron fist. And they did it thanks to the power of their trident in the center of the field: Pogba, Kant and Rabiot. The attack trident threatens, the other dominates.
Of the three, the figure of Pogba rose above that of the rest of the midfielders. Exhibition of power and talent that they said was a ‘whim’ of Zidane, who for years fought for his arrival at Real Madrid, which finally did not take place. Zidane knew what he wanted …
Pogba is a piece of gamer
For a long time Pogba became Zidane’s object of desire to reinforce Madrid’s midfield in a big way. Y it was not a whim of the technician because the French is a piece of player. He has a brutal hierarchy and presence on the field. And quality, muscle, physical display, stride, hit, finish, power … Pogba was decisive in the French victory with his participation in the 1-0, assisting Lucas with a pass from the outside that will sign Modric in the play of the goal.
The other French trident
The famous trident of France is Mbapp, Benzema and Griezmann, but the other Gallic trident in the center of the field is a spectacle. Deschamps aligned in the medullary to Kant, Pogba and Rabiot and what a match they scored, full of strength and talent. They held and threw France until the German push made them suffer a little. Kroos, which was seen very little, can attest to the power and forcefulness of the other French trident.
Benzema-Mbapp: Summer Love
France’s Eurocup debut left more photos for him Mbapp and Benzema’s ‘couple’ albuminseparable from the beginning of the concentration. Yesterday they posed together both in the initial formation with the Germans and the referee team and in the photo of the eleven. However, their off-field connection They have not yet finished exploiting it on the field of play. They had their moment of glory at the end of the game, but the Karim’s goal to Mbapp’s pass it was canceled.
Canceled, but what a great goal from Mbapp
Mbapp left glimpses of his quality throughout the game. Above all, flashes of coordination shown in speed and controlled ball actions. Proof of this was the great goal he scored in the second half, finally annulled for offside. He advanced at breakneck speed, faked, dribbled, looked for the space for the shot and shot close to the stick with a spectacular class. The same speed that he showed in the other goal disallowed against France for offside and in an action in which I removed the stickers from Hummels and end up asking for a penalty.
An avoidable own goal
Hummels scored on own door in the goal of France. It was a mistake that a defender of his level and experience should not have made. Hesitated and reacted late on a ball that he should have cleared without major problems. It is true that the presence of Mbapp for the shot he was pressing and that the ball came with some force, but I arm my leg too late to clear and it cost Germany dearly.
I don’t know what I was thinking Rudiger when he gave him to give a nibble on Pogba’s back while the French was about to receive the ball in a throw-in. Pogba complained little, but is an action out of place that you it could have cost expensive to the central if Pogba wants to draw more attention to the action. In fact, I protested to the assistant, which I interpreted that what he was complaining about was the offside that had just been whistled at him.
Del Cerro, another rise for Spanish arbitration
After the great performance of Mateu lahoz In the Champions League final and last Saturday in the Eurocup in Belgium-Russia, now it is Del Cerro Grande who has kept the bar for Spanish refereeing in France-Germany at all high. Good performance, with only the controversy of the kick in the face of Kimmich to Lucas in which the German played the second yellow card. Del Cerro interpreted that there was no intention and left him in a warning. He was brilliant in not decreeing a penalty in an action of Mbapp with Hummels, who touches the ball. Curious images of the ‘Spaniards’ Varane, Griezmann or Kroos being in charge of the protests.
