It is a competition to which the French did not attach a lot of importance a week ago, but which they have learned to love with the beautiful victory of the Blues yesterday in the final. After a very complicated semi-final against Belgium and a completely crazy end to the match, Didier Deschamps’ players found their Spanish neighbors in a very beautiful poster between two dominant nations in world football.
If the first half was rather sluggish, the second offered a lot more spectacle. After a huge French failure, the Spaniards opened the scoring, but it was without counting on Karim Benzema which puts the two teams in the same stride. It is finally the prodigy Kylian Mbappé who will deliver the Blues with a goal that allows the France team to win for the first time the League of Nations, a fairly recent competition. The French players were also delighted with this great victory after a completely failed Euro. On Instagram, they all shared their joy at winning a new trophy, more than three years after the World Cup in Russia.
Karim Benzema, the unexpected and once again decisive comeback with a goal from elsewhere, posted a nice photo of him with the trophy at the end of the match. “This trophy is ours and yours, thank you all for your support .. CHAMPIONS”, he writes on a publication already likée more than 1.3 million times in less than 12 hours!
