DOHA, Qatar — The Blues have no plan B. Already qualified for the Round of 16 of the 2022 FIFA World Cup™, France The sacrifice with nine new entrants clearly lacked collective criteria and conceded an unprecedented defeat (1-0) on Wednesday. Tunisia Entrepreneurship but removed.

The Game 3 curse strikes again! Having already produced a tasteless draw in Russia at the end of the group stage, Deschamps’ men will surely have had the same result in Qatar, although the defeat did not prevent them from retaining their lead in Group D.

But the referee wished otherwise by disallowing Griezmann’s equalizer at the end of extra time, ultimately for offside.

The coach’s umpires were blamed for the defeat, which abruptly ended a six-match winning streak at the World Cup.

The latter actually opted to renew kick-off Varane and Tichoumeni only while resting the other holders. But with nine inexperienced players, France could not be expected to do well due to their lack of spontaneity and balance.

Suffocated by an envelope-pushing opponent who won his cause, defending champion Carthage’s Eagles couldn’t compete in the game.

On the contrary, they know how to make the most of the presence of Tisasi and Kamavinga.

Khasri scored the goal

In the middle, the aligned quartet (Guendouzi, Veretout, Tchouaméni, Fofana) could never succeed, which would have made it possible for Konate to get rid of a defense that floated, and the experimental attacking duo set up by Coman and Coman would have been less isolated. Colo Mwani.

Against all odds, well-started by Fofana, however, the Bayern winger inherited the first real chance but hit wide (25).

But after losing the ball of the same Fofana, logically Khasri, who has already scored a double in Russia, confirmed the Tunisian dominance (58) against the more naive Blues and was non-aggressive.

At the same time the Tunisians scored their first goal just before going out of the competition, it was the 3rd goal already conceded by the French.

The entries of Griezmann, Mbappé and Rabiot made it possible to reorganize the debates, but, facing Tunisian solidity, it was not enough to return to the score before this incredible finale.

On the other hand, this prestigious victory rewards the choices of Jalel Khadri, who, apart from his Montpellier striker, launched a new attacking line and his Pistons, Malool and Kekrida, tried to extend the game and snatch qualification. With four points..

What he did not expect, however, was the result of the other group game, won by Australia against Denmark (1-0) and which narrowly prevented the Tunisian defeat against the Socceroos (1-0). The Tunisians qualified for the first round of 16 in their history.

The final whistle was enough to feed the frustration of both teams.
