Antoine Griezmann: this nasty injury which will deprive him of much more than a match

Hard blow for Antoine Griezmann! Beyond of two friendly matches, the injury à the world champion's ankle will above all put an end to this its record for longevity within the French team.

"After 84 matches in a row with the French team, the longest record survives ; d'Antoine Griezmann's stops there… Blessé &agrav; the ankle, Grizi is replaced; by Mattéo Guendouzi." On the French team's X account, the message appeared this Monday March 18 around 7:30 p.m., confirming the information from RMC Sport broadcast a little earlier in the evening and according to which the world champion withdrew from the friendly matches against Germany and Chile .

Respectively scheduled for March 23 and 26, these two matches would have been scheduled for March 23 and 26. the 85th and 86th consecutive meetings, all competitions combined, contested by Antoine Griezmann as number 7 of the Blues. Thus, for the first time in almost… seven years, the French will attend,   the end of the month, à a match for the France team without the Atlético de Madrid player. His last absence dates back to the 13th ;June 2017. That day, it was on the sidelines that Antoine Griezmann spent time on the sidelines. the friendly match between the Blues & England. Final score: 3-2 for the French.

The French team has already achieved this goal. announces that Lazio Rome midfielder Matteo Guendouzi, 24, will replace Grizou in the next two matches. A task that promises to be complicated, as Didier Deschamps himself pointed out. earlier today, believing that with the qualities of Antoine [Griezmann] in his register, we are not going to find a player who has these characteristics. And the boss of the Blues anticipates: "When we know the influence of Antoine, a replacement position for position is impossible or very, very serious; s, very difficult. We will arrange it a little differently."
