The France team drew against Portugal on Wednesday at Euro 2021 (2-2). A meeting marked by the huge tackle of Antoine Griezmann on Diogo Jota at the start of the meeting.
Didier Deschamps however told him to defend less. But Antoine Griezmann can’t help it. After spending five years under Diego Simeone at Atlético de Madrid, the Blues striker takes pleasure in harassing the opponent. And even to bump into him sometimes. Diogo Jota experienced it during France-Portugal, Wednesday at the Euro (2-2).

From the 9th minute, the Liverpool player suffered a monstrous tackle from “Grizou”. The 2018 world champion arrived sliding to stop the Portuguese striker’s race, visibly surprised by such a commitment. A spectacular and muscular gesture, but completely legal, which set the tone for this remake of the final of Euro 2016.
Benzema replied to Ronaldo
Five years after Eder’s strike at the Stade de France, the two teams have this time separated on a score of parity. Karim Benzema responded with a double to that of Cristiano Ronaldo, his former sidekick at Real Madrid. All with three penalties (two for Portugal, one for France). A result that allows the Blues to finish first in Pool F and find Switzerland in the round of 16, Monday in Bucharest (9 p.m.). La Selecção will face Belgium on Sunday in Seville (9 p.m.).
