A player marks the difference and leads the Blues on the pitch ahead of Saturday night’s World Cup quarter-final between France and England in Qatar

While the Blues focus on Saturday’s quarter-final against England (8pm, on BeIN Sports 1 and TF1), there is an air of calm and confidence in Didier Deschamps’ selection.

Hugo Lloris leaves few goals, the “bromance” between them Kylian Mbappe (5 achievements) and Olivier Giroud (3) Most productive in the World Cup held in Qatar, Antoine Griezmann shines in his new role as a torchbearer… But which Frenchman was the best in the first 4 matches of the French team? Here are our top 3!

The Atletico de Madrid striker is never good enough to be trusted by his coach and given complete freedom in midfield. And the least we can say is that he has Didier Deschamps in his pocket. His relationship with The Little Prince since Euro 2014, when they lost to Portugal in the final DD crescendo gone.

This is evidenced by the fact that the lover of the French played more than 70 matches in a row with the “blues”, which has never been seen before.

In Qatar, the “7” of the Blues is responsible for creating a connection between the defenders and the forwards. Knowing his dedication and game intelligence, it’s no surprise to see him raise his level of play at the World Cup.

Accustomed to returning to defense with his club, Grizou it can be said that the composition plays a role in the selection. Especially since he has more solutions with a teammate (and friend) in front of him Ousmane Dembele on the right wing, Olivier Giroud turning and Kylian Mbappe spinning around.

When Antoine Griezmanneverything is OK.

The top scorer in the history of “Blues” is in excellent form with 52 goals. Dreadful in duels (he’s 1.93 meters tall, which helps, let’s face it), he leaves AC Milan. No doubt the Italian club must be very happy to have secured his services for just €2.8 million!

owner instead Karim Benzemainjured at the last minute before the World Cup, Olivier Giroud it took no time to adjust. Already world champion in 2018, “9” and his goals (3 in 3 games in Qatar) are a boon for the French team to win another title after four years.

At 36, his link-up with Kylian Mbappe (23) is admired by the football world as their duo is so effective! Even in terms of goals, he is the best in the competition (8 in 4 matches).

The former Chelsea, Arsenal and Montpellier player averages a goal every 76 minutes in Qatar. Not bad for what is called karting, right?

You’d have to live in a cave to miss the Mbappe phenomenon. The Paris Saint-Germain and France superstar, former Monegasque, has statistics and opponents panicking.

The latest? Polish! They wanted ” bring scooters to the field to track it “and” they burned their feet and tried to keep up with him“. And we understand them well!

Flashing at 35km/h, the Bondy native is a real poison for defences. In addition, if he acquires exemplary behavior and demonstrates efficiency towards the goal (1 achievement every 60 minutes in Qatar).

He is currently the best player in the Blues and also in the World Cup.

If it continues, Didier Deschamps’ men should not be far from the roof of the world in the near future…
