Deschamps reacts to France’s elimination from Euro 2024

Following their elimination from Euro 2024, France head coach, Didier Deschamps has bemoaned his team’s performance in the tournament, saying his players didn’t play as well as they could.

Deschamps also admitted Kylian Mbappe “didn’t perform as well as he usually does”.

Mbappe especially struggled to make any impact, with the Real Madrid forward seemingly hampered after breaking his nose in the game against Austria.
