Antoine Griezmann has confirmed, during this stop of selections, that play with the selection of France takes out the best of him same. With the team of Didier Deschamps, the 'principito' shows full of confidence and presents like one of the leaders of the current champion of the world that, remember, has to other big stars like Kylian Mbappé or Paul Pogba.

"I seat me well, I find me well, because the trainer (Didier Deschamps) know where put me and, therefore, benefit me of this, as well as of the confidence that offer me the technician and my mates", said the forward of the FC Barcelona, commanding a clear message to Ronald Koeman with regard to the position in which better performance can offer on the terrain of game.

And maybe, something of reason have. The past season, Antoine Griezmann accustomed to play in the left extreme in the FC Barcelona and, in the start of the present, does it in the right. Escorado To a side, his leadership and his freedom reduce , something that, in his opinion, does not back his skills like himself does it the position of mediapunta that occupies in the French selection.

The statistical give him the reason to Antoine Griezmann that, with 33 so many annotated, already is the fifth maximum goleador of the history of the French selection by behind Thierry Henry (51), Olivier Giroud (42), Michel Platini (41) and David Trezeguet (34). According to the statistics of the portal 'Transfermarkt', 20 of his 33 goals and 18 of his 24 assistances lss has achieved playing like mediapunta, that is the position that less has frecuentado in the FC Barcelona.

In fact, the effectiveness goleadora of Antoine Griezmann like mediapunta levies to a goal each two parties contested, something very to take into account if it wants to increase his performance in the FC Barcelona. Like mediapunta, takes out all the advantages of his repertoire, something that does not do like extreme and that leaves opened for Ronald Koeman the road to bet by him in the centre.

Few qualities like extreme

It is true that Antoine Griezmann played of left extreme in the Real Sociedad, but was not until Diego Pablo Simeone planted him like mediapunta that the 'principito' turned into one of the best of the world. The Frenchman is not a fast player neither has dribbling, by what no desborda when it is hit to the band. His virtues, that are the arrival from second line and the association, would see reflected better by the axis of the attack, although Philippe Coutinho has gone in with a lot of strength in this position of mediapunta. The French, therefore, will have to work a lot.
