If Antoine Griezmann was keen to strengthen his position by recalling this week that he remained the official penalty taker for the Blues, Kylian Mbappé does not necessarily agree with his teammate. “We’ll see,” he smiled this Sunday.
The France team perfectly prepared its debut at the Euro in a tight time, with two informative victories against Wales (3-0) and Bulgaria (3-0). But the Blues also extended against the Welsh their poor series on penalties, with a fifth failure in eight attempts. A failure by Karim Benzema, who had been offered the opportunity to open the scoring for his comeback.
Mbappé: “For the moment, there is none”
Antoine Griezmann reportedly offered the opportunity to shoot the Madrid striker, but his act of generosity turned out to be a poisoned gift. Especially since, in the process, he recalled that there was still the number in the hierarchy of penalty shooters. But not everyone in the France group is necessarily aware, starting with Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappé.
“I don’t know, I heard Grizi (Antoine Griezmann) talk about that, but the coach didn’t say anything. Maybe I missed it, I wasn’t there, but for At the moment, there is no hierarchy. Maybe the coach will make one, but for the moment there is not, we’ll see. ” The France team will meet Germany in Munich on Tuesday, June 15 for their big debut at the Euro, in a formidable group F. The opportunity, perhaps, to check if the hierarchy on the perilous exercise of the penalty is well established.
