France-Australia: are the Blues ready? – 20 hour diary

A few dance steps to give you confidence. Laughter on the faces, like Olivier Giroud, Antoine Griezmann and even Raphaël Varane, just out of harm’s way. Relaxation and determination, 24 hours before the match against Australia. “We are ready for the start of this competition”, launches Lucas Hernandez, defender of the French team. At lunchtime this afternoon, the players were all smiles. They seem calm, just like their trainer. Didier Deschamps even took the time to take selfies with foreign journalists at a press conference. It is as if he wants to reassure the supporters and reassure his team, which has been degraded by the overlapping packages, especially Karim Benzema’s. “There is no need to be nervous or anything. Not to think about what might have happened before. The truth is tomorrow… We will be there for this first game”, says the coach of the Blues. Four years ago, France had already met Australia in their first World Cup match, and the Blues had won. So in Qatar, the supporters we met have good reason to hope. Kickoff on Tuesday 22 November at TF1 | Report by D. De Araujo, JM Bagayoko and D. Pirès
