Antoine Griezmann: From leftovers to heroes
Use Mbappe if you want to move quickly, and Griezmann if you want to move far. This is the strategy for the French squad to overcome obstacles both on and off the field, break the losing streak to the reigning champions at the most recent World Cups, and qualify for the tournament for a second straight year. on the last.
Mbappe is the Golgo Roosters’ most exciting player. All defenses were breached by the striker’s excellent technique, great speed, and fierce finishing. Griezmann, though, is regarded as the heart of Les Bleus’ performance. This is evident in the squad composition chosen by manager Didier Deschamps. Griezmann would be the “number 10” striker if Mbappe played as a left-wing striker and rarely visited his home ground.
Statistics show how important Grizou’s “brain” was because, on average, he took just one shot per game and scored no goals. In comparison, this attacker contributed 3 assists, 7 wonderful opportunities, and 21 clean-ups. At the World Cup final round of 2022, Griezmann is in the lead in each of the three creative categories described above, surpassing Lionel Messi (with 3 assists, 6 opportunities to create good chances, and 18 passes, respectively). tidy up the table).
If Griezmann’s role is not as noteworthy as Mbappe’s in the early stages, when the opponents are still very easy to play. However, Grizou’s influence is noticeable from the quarterfinals to the semifinals while playing challenging opponents like rival England or the phenomenon of Morocco. The Golgods’ striker was responsible for both of their goals against the Three Lions. When it came to the game against the Atlas Lions, he once more designed the pass for Mbappe to complete and sparked a flurry of activity that resulted in Theo Hernandez’s first goal.
More broadly speaking, Griezmann gave a solid defensive effort against Morocco. In comparison, the striker won 6 duels, 3 clearances, 2 recoveries, and 2 tackles while making 4 clear passes, 4 crosses, and 3 perfect passes. Griezmann, not Tchouameni, was occasionally the midfielder for Les Bleus who sat the lowest and made the save. As a result, without Grizou’s outstanding play and Kante and Pogba’s absence, Les Bleus would not have been able to advance thus far.
