A match in the form of a small final
In the country of cycling, in the Danish capital which hosted the big start of the Tour de France 2022, the French football team wants to change gear, after having derailed in June, especially against the Danes.
The Blues want to confirm the good impression left last Thursday.
This Sunday evening's match already promises to be a small final because victory would ensure that the French remain in the top flight of the League of Nations next season.
But Raphaël Varane sees much further.
The player is already thinking of the World Cup since it is the last match for the French before the main competition, recalls the captain of the Blues.
"For me, the objective is to prepare. There will be no friendly matches before, we will get right to the heart of the matter. So every minute on the pitch, every match, that counts for the World Cup goal", he says at the microphone of Europe 1.
