The French team does not finish carburizing in the Nations League. If on Friday he lost 1-2 in Paris against Denmark, this Monday he punctured in his visit to Croatia, in which the best of the match is the 1-1 result, since Dalic’s men had chances to have won. Rabiot put the world champion ahead and Kramaric put the tables on a penalty committed by Clauss in the final stretch.

The hectic schedule of the European teams, with four Nations League games in just ten days, has forced all the teams to rotate. France was no exception. Deschamps came out in Croatia with an eleven full of unusual players and proof of this is the attack made up of Ben Yedder, Nkunku and Diaby, nothing to do with Benzema, Mbappé and Griezmann with whom he played on Friday against Denmark.

Shield/Flag Croatia

Like against Denmark on Friday, France’s first half was leaden, especially with the ball. The Nations League is a tournament that makes European teams attractive, but the feeling is that the matches have a friendly rhythm and not an official match. Croatia started better than its rival, having in Budimir’s boots two very clear chances, both saved by an imperial Saliba and by Kimpembe, who quickly recovered the position and avoided the 1-0 of Dalic’s men.

France, who had had difficulty entering the game, began to take the lead from the 20th minute. Nkunku was nourished by an extraordinary pass from Diaby into space and beat Livakovic with a subtle Vaseline, although the referee annulled the goal for an offside position by the Leipzig attacker. Nkunku himself generated a one-on-one from Diaby, but the goalkeeper was immeasurable again, as in a shot to the front by Tchouaméni.

Shield/Flag France

In the second half, the intensity of both teams increased a lot. France put land in the middle through Rabiot. The Juventus midfielder, highly criticized for his extreme role with Deschamps, took advantage of an extraordinary movement outside the box by Ben Yedder to get to the second row and beat Livakovic. That 0-1 revived the world champion, who with the entry of Griezmann and the debut of Kamara in the middle gained freshness. It was precisely Griezmann who had the 0-2 in a great transition started by Diaby, but Livakovic was imperial.

Croatia did not give up until the end and he found his prize in a play that again exposed the French defense, which misjudged the offside line and allowed an opportunity that ended with a Clauss penalty, entered two minutes before the maximum penalty. Kramaric did not forgive and put the tables on the scoreboard. Griezmann made it 1-2 at the end, but his shot at an empty goal went wide.
