For those who follow our adventures, know that this time, our plane managed to take off and that yes, we are finally in Budapest, just in time to see the Blues win their second match in this Euro 2021. Well, be careful with do not underestimate the two opponents of the day too much.
Yes, "the": Hungary, who, as Didier Deschamps reminds us, "held Portugal in check for 84 minutes and even opened the scoring before the goal was rightly denied for an offside position" , and the sweltering heat of Budapest.
32 degrees at kickoff
Because yes, it's hot, very hot in Budapest.
The sun sparkles in an azure sky and burns your leather in less than two.
Bad luck for the France team, we will have to play at 3 p.m., when the thermometer will display 32 degrees in the shade.
We do not even dare to imagine the feeling.
In these moments, only one thing can save you, water.
Hugo Lloris understood this well.
“We pay attention to nutrition, preparation and hydration.
We hope there will be a water break.
We're all used to playing at 3 p.m. in the league, but a little less in over 30 degrees.
We will try to disregard ”.
Go tell your bodies to ignore when they've lost all of their mineral salts in a five-minute warm-up.
Good luck guys.
Coman too fair for Hungary?
The Blues familiarized themselves on Friday with the lawn of the Puskas Arena, where we are entitled to think that the replacements will have their say this time.
Corentin Tolisso in the middle, Lucas Digne and Jules Koundé in defense or Ousmane Dembélé in attack are ready to scratch some playing time… For Kingsley Coman, authorized to temporarily leave the group on Thursday to attend the birth of his companion, this seems more complicated: the Bavarian had not returned in time for the training on the eve of the match.
Clash session in front of the goals for the Blues at the end of the training session!
