The orange leaf, the sharp beaks, the escape of the gaelic cock … The ticket visited by Stade Feyenoord Rotterdam during the visit was foreseen by the evening waiting for the French team. In order to afford the world's hair sculptor, Dutch fans were: The Netherlands won (2: 0) on a way to Blues, on Friday, November 16th, in the fifth day of the League of Nations.

The group in which Didier Deschamps and Zinedine Zidane won Euro 2000.
If they temporarily hold the leader of their pool, one point before the Dutchman, the Blues are no longer the masters of their fate. Due to a better head injury (+4) Bataviani would be fired from the title race if at least the draw was done on Monday, November 19th, in Germany in Gelsenkirchen. already eliminated and reduced to B league next year.
"It does not depend on us anymore"
Didier Deschamps, who deals with his park, did not warn of " obvious defects "From his players, completely outdated, even spectral, in the second half. Visibly anxious, the boss of Blues saw in this wrong step part of decompression Post Mondial and did not resist his troops at a press conference. " It hurts. Our goal was to secure this first place; this is a mistakeattacked Bayonne, whose changes turned out to be ineffective. It's no longer dependent on us. This is a logical defeat. We had a lack of technical waste. No image. "
Didier Deschamps did not try to explain this decline with litany of absentia, wounds and crimes (at the time) of the very steep Stade Feyenoord (Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial, Lucas Hernandez, Benjamin Mendy, Alexandre Lacazette, Samuel Umtiti), which he faced in this international ceasefire in November . " I'd rather have everything available, but I will not find it as an excuse. It's a tough time, they're hurt, but with players who are there, we need to be able to do better He said, screaming.
During the sigh, the technician praised the features of "Orang", absent at the Euro 2016 and the World Cup 2018, and in the middle of a new season under the coach Ronald Koeman. The Dutch legend, which she appointed in February in the Netherlands, can be said to have broken a tricolor building in Germany after the crash (3-0) in October.

The goal of the Liverpool player was then overtaken by Dutch fans who were excited about the cold.
In the second half of the year, spectators at the Rotterdam Stadium jumped to the mercy of Lovor's spectacular parades. The French goalkeeper, who completely rejected him, believed that after a quick attack, he was restricting the break with layoffs, at the time of the stop, a strong shot by Frankie de Jong. But, just before the final whistle, English referee Anthony Taylor set a penalty spot after the absurd mistake of returnee Moussa Sissoko in his area.
Under the encouragement of an "orange departure" Lyonna Depth Depth trickled into account, so Lloris cheated with a subtle "panic". The Dutch players then took honor, while the stalls illuminated the lights, similar to the pencils in the frozen night.
Ruthless or even witty on the lawn, Blues fluctuates between disappointment and scourge after the game. " We were completely dominated. We're late. We were not good, The losing midfielder Blaise Matuidi admitted that his coach " he was angry ".
For their last trip in 2018, Blues will have to respond to Uruguay, Tuesday, November 20, in a friendly, to the Stade de France. In order to close this year in extremely different ways as extremely exceptional.
