A tournament that Florian Thauvin approaches with ambition even if he is one of the last minute calls. “The story is that Flo was in the pre-list for the Euro and Sylvain could not count on a pre-selected player in A. That’s why he arrived after”, nevertheless wanted to clarify André-Pierre Gignac on this subject in an interview given by the two men to The team.
Three years after the coronation of the Blues in Russia, Florian Thauvin has this time been reduced to a role of spectator. “Before being players, we are supporters of the Blues. Whatever happens, we watch the matches being fully behind them, even from Mexico ”, he thus assured. Asked about the reasons for the failure of the Blues, the former Marseillais was first of all more reserved: “It is not for us to answer. “” You had the match what, at 3-1. He was there, normally in the 80th … But there are no more small nations, in a Euro even less. Whoever says there are small selections is a liar. It’s hard, the football of the past no longer exists ”, nevertheless explained APG, prompting his friend of the Tigers to bounce back. “There is video, people are developing, following training abroad. We will also see at the Games that today, everyone is on point ”, he therefore added. Hoping that the France team has a better destiny there than at the Euro.
