To beat Germany in the UEFA Cup, France must play better than when they won 5 - 2 against Iceland !
France attacked in the first half of the match to lead at half time by 4 - 0 ! However, in the second half of the match France reverted to the possession style of football to defend its lead and it was Iceland which won that second half 2 - 1.
How many times in the second period did one see forwards not attacking but passing the ball more than 25 meters, back to the defence ?
France won the match, but the same tactics could be suicidal against Germany in the semi-final match on Thursday July 7, 2016 !
There is a saying in football, that the best method of defence is to "attack" ! Didier Deschamps the Manager, must not under-estimate the strengths and guile of Germany !
