France star Griezmann doesn't care about Courtois' criticism

Postado Julho 14, 2018

Antoine Griezmann has hit back at Thibaut Courtois after the Belgium goalkeeper criticised France's tactical approach to Tuesday's World Cup semi-final. It's a dream. We are going through to the World Cup final - but you have to realise that dream.

"We don't care how we win, we just want to win, all we care about is getting the second star on this shirt".

France forward Antoine Griezmann said Friday winning the World Cup against Croatia on Sunday was more important than how his team do it.

"Each team has a very strong midfield, there are also individually strong players in the attack", Amuneke was quoted as saying by Izvestia.

"I know the taste of defeat and it's really bad, so we want to finish this tournament well", Pogba said.

However, France boss Deschamps started with Blaise Matuidi on the left wing for the last-four clash to give some cover. Their blend of experienced campaigners like Griezmann and Paul Pogba, and young stars like Kylian Mbappe and Benjamin Pavard, ensures they are the bookmakers' favourites.

Defender Samuel Umtiti scored the game's only goal, despite Belgium having the lion's share of possession.

"It will be useful for us on Sunday, even if I don't like to keep bringing up the past". It will serve as a lesson to us and it means we know what it is to play in a final.

"I would have preferred to have lost in the quarter-finals to Brazil, at least that was a team that wanted to play football".
