France follows intractable in the phase of groups of the Eliminatory for the Eurocopa 2024. They have imposed with solvency in front of the Republic of Ireland in a party in which the goals of Aurelién Tchouameni and Marcus Thuram marked the difference in the marker of the Park of the Princes. They are five the victories followed and have his practically ensured presence for the tournament that will contest in Germany the next year.

It has not been an exhibition of the French, but yes a party in which they have remained clear the intentions of Didier Deschamps and his combined. In key FC Barcelona, Jules Koundé completed 89 minutes of action before being substituted by Benjamin Pavard. As it was to expect , split from the right side and, after a start of season sensacional in LaLiga, went back to feel uncomfortable on the lawn.

Koundé, uncomfortable in front of Ireland

The Parisian is not taste by the band neither is able to surrender as it expects him . In the Barça already had left quite a lot of doubts and have reaffirmed with France. It reduces his impact considerably and becomes a player that, by stretches, is unimportant so much in defence as to the hour to add to the attack. Against Ireland, left the feeling that it was missing him step 'extra' to be important.

It was hit to the hour to defend several contragolpes, but very 'slow' to the hour to generate danger and add to the attack. It was not decisive and bet at all times to the safe pass, although Ireland no him retó more than the account. Of the defensive saga, that was very hit and brilliant to the hour defend (overcoat the central, supported by Tchouameni), went the feeblest point. Rabiot Had to help him in a few occasions.

Koundé Asks to cries play in the axis

It remains clear that, although it was in the position where formed and that it can serve like a turns off fires, Koundé is for much more that play of side. In the FC Barcelona is showing it and, in fact, beside Frenkie of Jong is being the most differential player splitting like head office. The problem in France is that Deschamps hardly feels to his defenders of 'confidence' to leave him a gap to him.
