Dithyrambic on the level of the Blues, Nicolas Anelka however declared, in Top of the Foot this Tuesday on RMC, that the press and the supporters had to remain measured on the chances of victory at the Euro.
Exceptional guest of Top of the Foot on RMC, this Tuesday, Nicolas Anelka finds that the workforce of the Blues displays an “extraordinary” level and that the return of Karim Benzema is particularly “positive” for the group: “It brings a plus. He wanted to come back, and he wants to show everyone that he missed “. However, the former French international calls on the media and supporters to be cautious about the chances of victory at the Euro (June 11-July 11).
“Offensively, the team is very strong. (…) But let’s not forget that there has already been a very strong French team offensively. In 2002, there was England’s top scorer, Thierry Henry, Italy’s top scorer, David Trezeguet, France’s top scorer, Djibril Cissé, and France didn’t score any goals, “said Nicolas Anelka.
Anelka is “afraid” for Benzema in case of failure
“We must remain measured in relation to what people say,” said Nicolas Anelka. According to him, only players, as Kingsley Coman did, can today say that the France team is the best in the world.
“It is the press that must be calmed, he resumed. The players can ignite, they know their quality. What I’m afraid is that we will ignite on the attack from France and, if things don’t go well tomorrow, a name will emerge: Karim Benzema “.
The France team will start the Euro on June 15, against Germany in Munich. They will face Hungary on the 19th, then finish the group stage on the 23rd against Portugal.
