This morning I watched France24 to see clips of their friendly game.
Iceland took a 2-0 lead but France came back to win 3-2 with goals by Debuchy, Ribery and Rami. Last two were late goals.
In the interview, Karim Benzema seemed different. Crisper, more authoritative.
Benzema is a champion now with Real Madrid.
If Jose Mourinho keeps picking you, and you win La Liga, beating Barcelona, you feel confident.
And football is 90% confidence.
BLANC’s starting XI:
Mandanda; Debuchy, Rami, Mexes, Evra; Cabaye, Gourcuff, Nasri; Ben Arfa, Benzema, Menez.
In another warm-up game, France play Serbia on Thursday at 8 pm.
Full disclosure : I’ve backed France EW.
I reckon France could get to the final.
But so could six other teams…
