Didier Deschamps, the current coach of France’s football team in the FIFA World Cup, clears doubts among France’s supporters as they root for another title.
Deschamps led the team as captain as they clinched the 1998 FIFA World Cup. In 2018, he led France to the World Cup victory. France defeated England by a score of 2-1 in the game. Deschamps joined the crowd at Al Bayt Stadium in celebrating the victory. France’s easy victory in the quarterfinals was made possible by two goals from Tchouaméni and Giroud.
Didier Deschamps’ success as France’s World Cup coach is increasing as his team nears another final, silencing critics who believe he has been in charge for too long. Following their victory over England on Saturday, France will now face Morocco in the semifinals on Wednesday. The France coach will be allowed to decide whether or not to extend his 10-year contract as manager, regardless of the result of that game.
After being granted responsibility for the FIFA World Cup 2022 by Noel Le Graet, the president of the French Football Federation, Deschamps said that he had accomplished his goal. He claimed to have the authority to make the decision. He will be present for the semifinal, after which the public will have to wait for his decision regarding whether he will remain as France’s team coach. He is currently taking things one at a time.
Deschamps also mentioned how pleased everyone is, including the president. He wanted, however, to enjoy making it back to the final four. He also stated that he is only thinking about Wednesday right now. When France performed poorly at Euro 2020, people began questioning Deschamps’ coaching abilities. Deschamps may face his greatest battle to date at the World Cup in Qatar in 2022 since Zinedine Zidane is available and seems ready to succeed him as France’s next manager.
The absence of midfielders N’Golo Kante, Paul Pogba, and Karim Benzema before the game left the tournament’s holders apprehensive. Many observers questioned if France would follow in the footsteps of Italy, Spain, and Germany, who were all eliminated in the group stage of the following World Cup. In the absence of Benzema, Olivier Giroud has performed admirably, scoring four goals in Qatar, including the game-winning goal against England. Just before the match, Deschamps decided to ditch his three-man defence experiment and return to the 4-3-3 formation.
The fact that he transformed forward Griezmann into arguably the best midfielder in the tournament is maybe the most significant way in which he has handled his midfield conundrum. The Atletico Madrid midfielder, who had been struggling before the FIFA World Cup and hadn’t scored for his nation in nearly a year, once again sparkled against England, contributing to both goals. Deschamps is more confident than ever in his team’s ability to win the World Cup in 2022, and French fans are eagerly anticipating a crucial victory.
