Otherwise, I try to find little tricks. “Like sliding the player’s number or just the position to avoid wasting time and making mistakes by repeating the name often. “I’m sure that the live broadcast from Poland motivates me to work more before the match than many matches, emphasizes Walid Kachour. And again The world, we are not required to use Polish accents like Szczęsny’s “ę”. But apart from a few complex names, there are players whose background I don’t know well, like No. 14 Kiwior. »

He is more afraid of the Polish coach “with a very nice combination of consonants”. Because yes, Czesław Michniewicz is up against Robert Page (Wales) in this World Cup. “The advantage is that in a match for the French national team, we talk first of all about the blues, not about their good, not good, and less about the opponent,” smiles Nicolas Camus.
