Palos to Mbappé: “Unmasked”

Lhe French press has dawned between disappointment at the elimination of ‘les bleus’ and praise for a Spain and a Lamine Yamal whom they recognize as vastly superior. They are especially critical of their team’s offensive play, which once again is quite poor. Didier Deschampsmore in question than ever for the fans.

The team

“Unmasked”, L’Equipe headlines its cover, accompanied by a photo of a resigned Mbappé and in which Didier Deschamps can be seen in the background, more questioned than ever. The new Real Madrid player did not use the famous mask, but he again seemed uncomfortable despite assisting in the goal of Muani City. The French newspaper highlights that French happiness lasted only a few minutes after the PSG striker’s goal, since Spain later surpassed France. They end by saying that this Eurocup “leaves a bitter aftertaste” since, despite having reached the semifinals, the team has shown a poor and lackluster game.

RMC Sport

RMC Sport is dedicated to collecting some of the most striking headlines from the Spanish press, especially highlighting the performance of Lamine Yamal, who with his great goal from outside the area once again slipped into the history books due to his precocity. The coach’s words also stand out Didier Deschamps, who from the first moment recognized his guilt in the defeat of the French.

‘The Parisian’

The newspaper ‘Le Parisien’ has a very forceful approach to the party, recognizing that “France against Spain reached its glass ceiling in the Euro Cup” and the unanimous feeling of Deschamps’ squad that they had been inferior to the Spanish team stands out. They agree with his coach, reproducing his words about the match: “Spain is a great team and they have shown it even though we were able to open the scoring. He made it difficult for us because he has been superior in control. “We have tried until the end, but Spain has been the team that has given the best impression in this tournament and has shown its quality.”

Le Figaro

‘Le Figaro’ follows the same tone as the previous medium. They headline in their sports section: “Spain was too strong and the ‘bleu’ miracle is over.” They shower Luis de la Fuente’s team with praise, ensuring that they are the best team in the competition, and that it is no coincidence that they reached the final. They end up hallucinating “the jewel Lamine Yamal”who with his spectacular goal in the first half became the youngest scorer in the history of the Euro Cup.

In general, the French media reflects the general feeling of the fans, which is huge discontent with the French team, not only because of the elimination but because of the play shown throughout the championship. Deschamps, who won a World Cup and reached the final of another – big words – is more questioned than ever and it could be the end of a glorious era for ‘les bleus’.
