Deschamps Hails France Players’ Winning Mentality Against Belgium

France coach Didier Deschamps has praised the mentality of his players following their semi-final win against Belgium at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Les Bleus edged the contest 1-0 with Samuel Umtiti grabbing the winning goal from a Antoine Griezmann’s corner-kick.

“My players are young but they played with a good mentality against a good Belgium,” Deschamps told reporters after the game.

“This is exceptional, I am happy with my players, they are young but they played with a good mentality against a good Belgium.”

Deschamps also emphasized on the work put in by the team in their preparations ahead of the game.

“We have worked a lot in defence and and the attack. I also want to congratulate my players who are going to play this final, many difficult things have happened but if we are in the final it is for those who are in the field of play,” he stated.

    What more can I say?
    Young England I pray they win tomorrow, might play in the final.

    An average team like Nigeria, England has even a young coach, under 20 coach without club side experience that is outstanding, just like Siasia and Amuneke.

    He had no five years with these boys, he had less time than Rohr.
    He only had the youth team mentality, 11 against 11.
    We can win, we will win to make names for ourselves, our families, our country.

    That is what Rohr lacks.
    Rohr must go.

    An army of sheep led by a lion, will ultimately win an army of lions led by a sheep.

    Rohr suffers from low self esteem.
    Does he even know that we beat Bulgaria ranked 3rd by FIFA in 1994, Spain ranked 5th in 1998, and yet he is talking about inferiority complex and being Afraid of teams.
    Did Rohr watch Brazil 2014 Nig v Arg?
    Even Steven Keshi played Argentina 11 v 11.

    Rohr is a failure, let him go.

    @CJ, you have said it all bro. Indeed, Mr. Rohr is a failure and he have no choice but to go. We don’t want Oyinbo coach in our football anymore. I am using this medium to reach out to the CSN to help us talk to NFF about our concerns over the coach of the Super Eagles team. If we doesn’t know where we are going, we should be able to know where we were coming from. For this reason, this is the best time for our indigenous coaches to prove to us they are capable to coach the Super Eagles team. God bless us all. God bless Nigeria!!!

    Why appealing to CSN you should to NFF yourself and see if anybody will listen to you. Misplaced priority no go and face you work na Rohr matter make you put for head.

    When I said that Rohr is deficient technically, only a few believed me.

    If I were a coach, I wouldn’t play a player that has not scored in about four or five matches in a crucial match like that against Argentina when good legs like Iwobi are wasting on the bench.

    Rohr, to put it mildly, is not technically sound.

      Even the blinds and the deaf know that Rohr is not technically sound.In fact, with Rohr super Eagles cannot achieve anything heart in world Football. Any coach that still depending on the tactics and talent of players like Omeruo, Ighalo,Idowu,Echiejeli as main organs of his team,is not a sound coach.

    @omo9ja you have been saying the truth but nigerians hate truth rohr is not a good coach i saw it doing the qalifing matches a good coach cant go to world cup with a player like ighalo not only ighalo shehu. AWaziem.idowu.akpeyi.echijile.onazi. has no biznes in our team we have good players home and abroad droping ola aina and dele ajiboye was a big mistake ajiboye is far far better than uzoho for now uzoho is very good but for future imagine the goal he consided against argentina. I dont know why he did not invite the likes of efe ambrose.anderson esiti.stanley amuzie. Olorunwaju kayode.henry onyekuru.sadiq uma.azubuike okechukwu. Nff should do something before is too they should give siasia and amuke chance to work they will surely deliver ROHR MUST GO
