Deschamps claims their second half aggressiveness changed everything.
France boss Didier Deschamps believes that their aggressiveness in the second half against Belgium changed everything.
France came back from a first half 2 goals from Belgium to win 3-2 in the Nations League semi-final.
Deschamps admits that they didn’t play well in the first half of the game but despite the struggle they had the character to turn things around.
“It’s one of the best because of how it unfolded, because of the quality of our opponents,’ Deschamps said.
“Despite the adversity we had the pride and the character to turn it around. It is a great, great moment.
“We were below our par in the last part of the first half but once we played more aggressively it was another story.
“The players were feeling down at halftime but it’s because we had given Belgium the opportunity to score those two goals. The players showed pride and character.”
Deschamps hail his forward Kylian Mbappe in the game as the PSG star proved himself after the disappointing Euro2020 tournament.
“Kylian didn’t have any doubts,” said Deschamps after the match. “He was determined after lacking efficiency at the Euros.
“Like I always said, the French team is better with than without Kylian Mbappe.
“We were knocked out by Switzerland (at Euro 2020) but the France national team is still here. We’re still among the best teams.”
