After a mediocre performance in the face of the netherlands on Thursday, the team of France is a bit of a comeback in the game and win it by beating Uruguay in Saint-Denis (1-0) in a friendly match thanks to a penalty from Olivier Giroud registered in the second period. Of course, this success puppet will not remove the counter-performance habs in the League of nations, but lets finish this rich year 2018 on a fairly positive note, in the result, but also, a little, in the content.
Despite a very cold winter and a poster between two teams at the profile rather defensive, the stade de France Stadium was nearly full on this Tuesday evening to host the last appointment of these fresh world champions. But the leaders of the Paris SG may not have enjoyed the show today since they have been witnesses to the exit on injury of Kylian Mbappé, hit in the shoulder. Neymar being injured at the beginning of meeting the same evening, it is a black Tuesday for the capital club.

Didier Deschamps had yet to turn, but only in defence and in midfield. The trio of attack is stayed, unchanged, to the chagrin of the fans in paris. The breeder had even revived a hinge central in the scent of post-Knysna period of 2011, consisting of experienced Adil Rami and Mamadou Sakho. To the left, he stuck with the entry for the first time Ferland Mendy, very prominent in the suit of Lyon since the beginning of the season and gave the usual Benjamin Pavard right.
against a team of Uruguay’s quite harmless and very far away from the netherlands in the style, the Blues have been able to develop their game and offer a few sequences offensive interesting conducted by the triangle Matuidi Giroud-Griezmann. Problem, two of these players do not embody truly the next generation of selection and have, however, been the most prominent throughout the meeting.
Kylian Mbappé was also the spearhead of several occasions of goal. But the young French prodigy has too lacked lucidity at the end of its races in front of goal. Moreover, the action game that brings the injury to the shoulder is due to the fact that he saw the goalkeeper uruguayan arrived too late. By lifting more in the head, he might have avoided his fall.
Match a nightmare for the club, île-de-france, this friendly meeting was nevertheless useful for Didier Deschamps. The two players of the OL Ferland Mendy and Tanguy Ndombélé have shown by example that they were proxies of quality to their respective positions. It is hoped that the breeder will take advantage of this freshness in the workforce to reshuffle some cards in 2019.
