The France team will start its World Cup this Tuesday, November 22 (8 p.m.) against Australia as part of the first day of Group D (match to follow live on our site). For Jérôme Rothen, Antoine Griezmann is an essential player in Didier Deschamps’ system. Rothen therefore expects him to be present during this World Cup.

The precious player is Griezmann. I have often criticized it, rightly, in the role it should have. A role that has completely evolved since Euro 2016. Behind it is a bit of a decline in relation to his career choice, in relation to what he gives off on the field, whether in club but also in selection . It’s Didier’s favorite. We know that he has a hard time questioning it or taking it out. We will have to do with Antoine Griezmann on the ground. Which will certainly push to play with two attackers and therefore Antoine in false number 10 since he is very low on the ground. I’m waiting for him. If Didier gives him this confidence, it must be reciprocal and Antoine releases more strength on the ground. I hope he does, I hope he surprises us and lives up to the position he has in this group“, confided Rothen for Foot Mercato in an interview that can be found in full here.
