We will probably be satisfied with it on the French side. Beaten by Denmark (1-2) then hooked by Croatia (1-1), the Blues snatched a split (1-1) in Austria at the very end of the match. A point which allows them not to immediately put away their ambitions of victory and to still dream of a 1st place in their Nations League group.
But what was it hard for the Blues, long apathetic, without ideas and logically picked cold at the end of the 1st half, andreas Weimann taking advantage of an error in the placement of William Saliba in the French defense to grow a caviar of Yarn and score the first goal of the match.
Reinvigorated by half-time and a speech from Didier Deschamps no doubt… carabineered, the Blues then regained the upper hand, granting themselves numerous chances (more or less frank) but coming up against either an Austrian thigh or a stratospheric Pentz between the local poles.
Deliverance finally came, after a long sterile domination, from the feet of a Kylian Mbappe who was not to play but who was finally thrown into the bath in the 63rd to try to limit the breakage. Propelled deep by a sumptuous ball of Christopher Nkunkualso a luxury substitute, the Parisian shot Pentz to offer an almost unexpected point to the Blues.
