France coach Didier Deschamps is one match away from making history by becoming the first captain to win the World Cup twice.
France has a history of success in FIFA competitions, and coach Didier Deschamps is the main topic of conversation. He has been the driving force behind the success of the team. As France approaches Sunday’s match with Argentina, there are remarkable doubts about whether it will lift the trophy once again. France is ready to take the final step toward winning its second consecutive FIFA World Cup title when it faces Argentina on December 18.
France has already suffered disappointment at Euro 2020, and Deschamps was dealing with an injury crisis. Yet the coach managed to bring out the best in the circumstances. A born winner and an inspirational leader, Deschamps tactically pulled off a masterstroke and turned forward Antoine Griezmann into a midfielder.
Some fans might be making fun of Deschamps and his team and want to play their game more aggressively, but Griezmann’s comment for his respected coach revealed a different picture. Griezmann praised Deschamps’ management skills and expressed that the coach is highly respected by the team members and admires what he has achieved in his career.
Before the tournament, Deschamps told AFP that it was hard to win a World Cup and even harder to win it again. Definitely, one needs skill and talent, but the mentality, mindset, and determination are also required to win at this level. Driven by Deschamps, France is the first World Cup holder to appear again in the final match. And now he is standing just one match away from becoming the first coach to lift the World Cup trophy twice, creating history.
Whatever the outcome of Sunday’s match, France awaits Deschamp’s decision, as his contract expires this year, and he must now decide whether he wants to continue and lead France to Euro 2024. To this, the coach said that he was not the important part to be discussed right now. The team got the opportunity to retain their winning title, which is already a big achievement, and they have high hopes to create history on Sunday.
