Scorer Monday with Atlético, Antoine Griezmann would be on the way back to great form. Very good news for the French team.
He had been waiting for this for 221 days. Monday, Antoine Griezmann scored Atlético de Madrid’s third goal at Getafe (0-3). An important moment for the French striker, who had not found the net since the beginning of January.
Above all, it’s an ideal way for “Grizou” to launch the new season, after a last exercise that ended with difficulty. “This summer it was pretty good, commented Fred Hermel on RMC on Tuesday evening. Afterwards we are in a non-verbal communication from Antoine Griezmann. Monday the goal he scored is the goal of someone who does not take his head. This is the goal of someone confident. On a deep ball, he arrives in front of the goalkeeper and he hits from afar. This is not the goal of someone who asks questions and worries about his future or his place. »
« You need a Griezmann in great shape to go far in this World Cup”
The world champion has been evolving quite far from his best level for several months. And seeing him open his goal counter from the first day of La Liga is an excellent thing. “Griezmann is expected to make assists and score goals without doubt in front of the goalkeeper, Hermel adds. The basic Griezmann we have it but what we want is the happy Griezmann, the Griezmann scorer and the Griezmann passer. Here we have the impression that the conditions are met. »
This is therefore good news for Atlético but also a good signal for the France team. Griezmann is a basic man of Didier Deschamps and his last performances, especially in June, caused some concern. The Blues can thus hope to see the Mâconnais again in its best light. “I hope for him that we will see a great Griezmann at the World Cup, added Mathieu Bodmer, still on RMC. Because if he is in good shape and in good spirits as the goal scored on Monday shows… We know that when he is in this shape, he has been an important player for the France team for many years. . You need a Griezmann in great shape to go far in this World Cup. »
