The France team were eliminated from the Tokyo Olympic Games after their crushing defeat against Japan at Yokohama Stadium this Wednesday afternoon (0-4). In a post-match press conference, the Bleuets captain did not rule out the idea of donning the jersey for the next Paris Olympics in 2024. But despite his 4 goals during the competition, making him the top scorer provisionally in the tournament standings, the Monterrey Tigres striker knows that there will surely be big names in the next edition.
“I will play until 40, but I see Antoine (Griezmann), who is a lot behind the France team on Twitter, who is positioning himself. Kylian (Mbappé) said he wanted to do them and we’ll see who will be the third … There it was, it was a great adventure, but when the step is too high, it is too high. Before the game against Japan, we believed in it, I thought we could do it but when you see their team set up, it’s complicated. When you take eleven goals in three matches, it’s too hard ”, he said, disappointed after the setback against the host country.
