A return to form for number 7 who concluded his interview on leaving the field with a short sentence that did not go unnoticed.

A sentence that he does not appropriate for the first time
Just after the final whistle, Antoine Griezmann took the time to answer a few questions, and just before returning to the locker room, he said: "Long live France and long live the Republic".
A striking sentence that he does not appropriate for the first time.
During the 2018 World Cup, just before the final against Croatia, in a press conference the player was also explained.
"You have to be proud to be French, we say it very little, we are good in France, we eat well, we have a beautiful country, I want young people to also say 'long live the Republic, long live France' “, he confided.
Griezmann known for his quirky gimmicks
This little sentence had gone up to the ears of Emmanuel Macron.
In 2019, during the presentation of the Legion of Honor to the Blues, the president had explained to him that he had been upset by his statement.
The number 7 of the France team, well known for his quirky gimmicks, had already stood out for his cover of rapper Drake's choreography or a dance straight out of a Fortnite online video game.
A time when he scored goal on goal with the Blues.
