“Lesson”, “Reminder”, “evening to forget”: the Blues stunned after the slap against Germany

Special correspondent to Décines

Aurélien Tchouaméni: “I think we were outclassed in all areas of the game. We didn't show our best face and it showed. It's a reminder, a little slap too. We're a little upset because we never want to lose. It hurts in front of our audience but we have to keep a cool head. We will have to get up and bounce back. (the first German goal) It's a misunderstanding and then there's a great strike. We were picked up cold and that set the tone for the match. Then, it was especially difficult defensively. In football, we manage to do what we want offensively thanks to recoveries. I don't think it was an attitude problem because we all wanted to win. We all made efforts, but perhaps not at the same time. Then afterward, when you start losing duels, you back down. »

Adrien Rabiot: “We should have done better. We have to take the match from the right end, we didn't do that. Above all, it was the state of mind that was not good this evening. It was quite complicated because they had quite a few players in the midfield, quite a few players up front who were dropping out. They were often in the right areas and then it combined very quickly. We were not good in terms of intensity and state of mind. Technically, we can compete with them, but when the state of mind is not good, it gives that. »

Olivier Giroud: “What if we took a lesson? Yes, that’s the case, we shouldn’t make excuses. They picked us up cold, we took time to react, we didn't score on our highlights. It's a reminder that you have to put on the warm-up blue from the start of the match and for 90 minutes. We lost too many duels and balls. It is not nothingness either, we must not dramatize but we must be aware that they were superior to us this evening (Saturday). »

Brice Samba: “It happens to miss a match but it’s a good reminder all the same, which shows that you will have to be present to beat this kind of opponent. This evening (Saturday), we were not present, we did not put the necessary ingredients. We didn't show our true colors. It's an evening to forget, really an evening without, that's the word you have to remember. We are big boys, we are all aware of what happened, it’s up to us to bounce back on Tuesday (against Chile in Marseille).”
