Would France be better off without Antoine Griezmann up front? | ESPN FC

Antoine Griezmann won his 100th France cap and another trophy as they beat Spain 2-1 in the UEFA Nations League final. However, Frank Leboeuf joins Nedum Onuoha and Julien Laurens on The Gab and Juls Show to explain why Didier Deschamps might be better off trusting Kylian Mbappe and Karim Benzema as their only strikers going forward.

  1. I really like you Nedum. Well, on my take on this issue, I think Griezmann is a superb player but France have got a huge pool of players who when they come in they change the system. If you have Benzema who's fantastic on the ball, he might not be a Giroud type who'll drop ball for Grizu. In a nutshell, I think this current 11 would be better without him.

  2. I'm with Frank on this one even tho it's hard decision cuz when you have defense players on the mid it will open space n u can switch n score goals griezmann is not doing good on the attack n he is taking all that space away with no creativity

  3. As soon as Griezmann left the Euro game against Switzerland, the lead got shorter and they ultimately lost the game. Dropping Antoine is not even in question. He plays an important role for this team, get these guys off the air.

  4. I always felt that Deschamps could have let Benzema back to the team earlier imagine how many goals Benzema could have scored in the world cup coz Giroud never did in as much as he was a great team player
    Benzema can play both as the false 9 or the main man in attack
    Great to see the best French striker now playing and winning with France, it was unfortunate they never won the Euro Cup

  5. Griezmann is the most hardworking forward ever
    He tracks back to help the team defend, tracks down opponents, always drops deep to help in build up play
    I don't see a problem with his offensive output going down coz Deschamps has changed how the team attack with Benzema in the team instead of Giroud, Giroud was a target man that held the ball and interplayed with the quick forwards (Mbappe – Griezmann) but now with Benzema it's different coz Benzema is the focal point of attack
    France have gone from having a Firminho type of CF that acts as a false 9, sacrifices for the forwards with his runs to having a Haaland type of CF that is the focal point of attack, the one that is scoring more
    Benzema has evolved his game from the CF that sacrificed for CR7 to being the main man now at Real Madrid
    He's among the best strikers now up there with Haaland and Lewandowski in terms of goals

  6. i feel so bad for him yeah his offensive level dropped he had rough time in barca and i heard he is still struggling in atletico madrid but does he really deserve this criticism for his performance for the nt???? poor lad i hope he can answer all of this clowns on the pitch

  7. no one can think of benching griezmann , he might dont score goals everytime but he manages the midfield like pogba does and his passing is astonishing.Griezmann was the only best player of france at euros 2016 and world cup there was neither karim nor mbappe , grizi did his work perfectly and won the world cup.Frankly speaking neither karim nor mbappe contributed more than griezmann , france team are lucky to have him .
    He works hard even he recieves rough words or demotivation from fans and gives everything for hs team.
    Now i am feeling that griezmann is being left behind by karim and mbappe.They both takes penalties and remember it was griezmann who took before them.Not everytime give him a chance to score penalty, both karim and mbappe are playing or behaving like they are real madrid boys and always stick together . And previoulsy mbappe was also given the job of freekicks and corner kicks with grizi and pogba at back.
    I will say it is not good to think about not having griezmann in the france team

  8. Please don't start this kind of 'zizanies'! Somehow, Griezmann seems to have been jolted by a hill-conceived spell with Barcelona. He's back at Athletica and will be A-OK. Griezmann is 'INCONTOURNABLE' within the current Bleus' team!!!
