It seemed that the French team would easily occupy the top of Group 1, League A when in the same group with Croatia, Denmark and Austria. However, after 4 matches, the Goblet Roosters only collected 2 points after 2 draws against Croatia and Austria, the rest lost 2. This achievement makes France currently at the bottom of the table.
Returning to the Nations League this time, France also suffered a significant loss in terms of force in the absence of Paul Pogba and Kante, two irreplaceable names of France in big campaigns. In addition, Benzema is also having injury problems and leaves the possibility of playing.
In addition, there was a controversy with Mpape when this player refused to take pictures with the team due to objections to sponsor requests.
Across the field, Austria got 4 points after 4 matches in the group stage, including a resounding 3-0 away win over Croatia and a draw at home against France. Austria’s motivation to conquer is even greater in this tournament, when they did not win a ticket to the World Cup in Qatar.
