France vs ESTONIA: Friendly Match 5th June

i expect a massive defeat alm:

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? AndÖ.itís the football, thatís the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

Done. Your guys looked a bit in holidays against Ukraine. But maybe they can put a good fight lige Iceland did against France.

the difference is Iceland has plenty of quality players compared to us

really I was looking over their squad and it's amazing how many young and promising players they have at decent clubs considering their population is about 300 000...if there's one real football nation in Europe then it's Iceland

That wasn't that long ago. Surely you could build upon those displays. I find it odd that you would fall apart so suddenly, I mean, you mentioned that Estonia had found a set of decent forwards for once, they can't suddenly be useless.

tbh our qualification campaign success was 85-90% down to Vassiljev's excellent performances...if he keeps playing like this then everything's possible.

It look like the Iceland game all the way so far. France struggling, while Estonia relies on counter attacks.

Typical Estonia really, some decent passing until we run out of options and somebody kicks the ball forward aimlessly and then we concede a goal from a lapse of concentration by a defender. That's the difference in class showing, every time there's a French player running one-on-one with a defender at speed, I expect a goal to be scored or something dangerous to happen.

I'm surprised by Kink to be honest, I thought it would be a mistake starting him on the left wing but he has been doing something I've never seen him do before - defending Him and Teniste seems like a good combination on the left. If Kink has actually changed his game to help out in defense, he could possibly be a regular starter there. Then he'd have less chances to take those pointless long shots with which he scores one in a hundred shots.

we played surprisingly good for the first 20 minutes and managed to create decent chances, then came the quick one-two between Ribery and Benzema resulting in a goal and we collapse. basically Ribery and Benzema were too much for our defense, they were hopelessly outclassed.
