2022 World Cup: Deschamps summoned to explain!

While Fabien Galthié was slow to react to the French XV’s failure to reach the quarter-finals of the Rugby World Cup, Didier Deschamps never really analyzed Les Bleus’ disillusionment with Argentina in the final of the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

While Fabien Galthié was slow to react to the French XV’s failure to reach the quarter-finals of the Rugby World Cup, Didier Deschamps never really analyzed Les Bleus’ disillusionment with Argentina in the final of the 2022 FIFA World Cup. That, at least, is the feeling of Christophe Dugarry, who, one year on, on RMC, urges the national coach to provide answers to his many questions.

A year ago, after the final whistle and that lost final, I was like everyone else. I wascations due to the fans

To this end, the former striker drew up a list of questions which he felt had never been asked of the Bayonne coach. For example, for this World Cup final, explain to us why Monsieur Deschamps chose this team composition and organization in order to cause problems for the Argentinians. We could still ask him. Could we also ask him what the Argentinians’ weakest point was, and what his team tried to emphasize? Why was his team so physically dominated? and tell us which ones? Ask him if he has any regrets or if he would have liked to change anything before or during the match? There are dozens of questions that a good journalist should have asked him. But that was never the case.

In conclusion, Christophe Dugarry invokes the right of fans and followers of the French team to find answers to these questions, which fuel disappointment and frustration. I think Deschamps owes this analysis to the fans and supporters of the French team. I think it would even be a mark of respect towards the French fans who have lived this World Cup with such passion. Of course, I’m not an idiot, and I don’t think that a coach or a national team coach is obliged to explain everything. But for a World Cup final as crazy asormateur. So sometimes, explaining or analyzing things becomes a duty. I don’t think there’s anything inexplicable.
