After a half-hearted match against Uruguay, the France will be keen to shine against Namibia on Thursday night. In front of the Marseille public, the Blues intend to offer a show to the spectators and win hands down.

Before hosting the Mass of Pope Francis on Friday, the Velodrome stadium will vibrate the France this Thursday evening, on the occasion of the meeting between France and Namibia, for the Rugby World Cup. But before kick-off at 21 p.m., the French fans are waiting for the Blues to make a jump.

Because if the France rugby team started the competition brilliantly, against Uruguay last week, the Blues were more feverish. So for this meeting, the French will be keen to forget their laborious match of last week." We have a heart to show a face that corresponds to us, we want to make a successful performance, clean, which corresponds to what we can and what we know how to do, "explains the second line Thibaud Flament.

Return from injuries

Fabien Galtier recalled his managers left to rest against Uruguay, including the third line Charles Ollivon who hopes for a good victory. "Are we going to make a hit? We will already apply ourselves first to win the game, to build our victory and obviously we will give the maximum to do things we have been working on all week, and come out of the game with the banana," he explained.

So feast, but also mark the spirits and the tests. Clearly, give a show to the public of the Velodrome, and allow the pillar Cyril Baille and the center Jonathan Danty back from injuries, to finally make their entry into this World Cup.
