Euro, “Benzema has nothing to do with it!”

In an interview with the daily L’Equipe, Didier Deschamps went back in detail on the elimination of the France team at Euro 2021.

If it was one of the rare tricolor satisfactions during the Euro 2020, Karim Benzema could not avoid a real failure for the Blues eliminated from the stage of the knockout stages by Switzerland. Some specialists have mentioned the return of the French striker to justify the imbalance that there has been within the workforce of Blues. An analysis that would clearly not hold water according to Didier Deschamps.

« Karim has nothing to do with it, entrusted the coach of the France team on the columns of the sports newspaper. Everything he had to do, he did very well. Afterwards, I had to change the team for different reasons. I know this is not ideal. Despite everything, we were 3-1 in the 80th (against Switzerland editor’s note) and there, what had been our strength so far has failed us. I could have done things differently. Yes! But we were 3-1 in the 80th! »

Asked about the somewhat late timing of the return of Karim Benzema in selection, the coach of the Blues will say: ” Neither he nor I can go back. Between leaving ten days in March to play three games and prepare for a great competition, it’s day and night. I’m not convinced this would have fundamentally changed things. »
