Exceptional guest of the program “Europe 1 Sport” (every evening from 7:15 p.m. to 11 p.m.), the former tricolor international Christian Karembeu returned to the qualification of the French team for the round of 16 of the 2022 World Cup after his victory against Poland (3-1).

Carried by a Mbappé, author of a double and passer for Olivier Giroud’s 52nd goal, the Blues dominated Poland (3-1) in the round of 16 of the Qatari World Cup, Sunday, December 4. A great performance to which Christian Karembeu reacted live on the show Europe 1 Sport which takes place every evening from 7:15 p.m. to 11 p.m.

“It’s the match of all records because I see that Kylian (Mbappé) is also getting closer to Just Fontaine. And this time Giroud who beats Thierry Henry and Hugo who very probably passes Lilian Thuram”, declared the former player of the Blues at the microphone of Cédric Chasseur. And for good reason, Olivier Giroud became the top scorer in the history of the France team by scoring his 52nd goal in the Blue jersey. He now exceeds Thierry Henry by a small goal (51 goals). Olivier Giroud’s record, “it’s exceptional”, continued the former 98 world champion.

“A constant evolution”

And despite the fears expressed before the World Cup, the French team is currently present in this 2022 World Cup. Christian Karembeu praises the hard work of coach Didier Deschamps who continues to develop the team: ” When you look at Didier’s (Deschamps) team, which has evolved a lot since he took over, there is a constant evolution. After 2018 he changed part of his team. He continued to work, to do work on his players and make the team perform well. It’s not easy but he did it.”

So the work pays off. France is only one match away from the initial objective set: to go at least to the semi-finals. But they can hope for more and Christian Karembeu believes in it even if it will be necessary to make some adjustments for the quarter-finals: “Didier (Deschamps) knows it very well, he has seen that he has adjustments to make since we still concedes goals. One per game is too many, I think, to go very far. So Didier (Deschamps) will focus on trying to play his defense, not concede and continue to have this possession of the ball .”
