LE FIGARO. – Will the French team beat England?
Noel LE GRAËT. – I honestly want it. It will be very balanced. This quarter-final will be a hell of a test that will prove or disprove everything the team has achieved in Qatar. It won’t be much… But we will win (smiles).

Are you satisfied with the course and attitude of the “Blues”?
He is exemplary. We were told that Australia (beat France 4-1 in 1st match) wasn’t terrible, you saw their very interesting career… We lost to Tunisia (1-0) but rolled as did Brazil (also lost: by Cameroon 1 -0). Against Poland (3-1) we had a chaotic first half with three actions, but then of course there is Mbappe (scorer of a double), he works well around him as well.
