This young Dutch team put in place for a few months by Coach Ronald Koman is harvesting the fruits of his chutzpah and enthusiasm, but also of his patience. That she was abused on Monday night by a resurgent and proud Germany, who wanted to end with a positive result and the worst year in her history.

A real mistake for the blues

The League of Nations is definitely a new UEFA tournament of relative importance, but the Blues have nonetheless made it a priority after the World Cup.

Captain Hugo Loris was reminded again on Monday afternoon, while the qualification seemed to compromise. "Even if it is not the World Cup, Euro or qualifying stage, it is still a competition and we set ourselves the goal of the first finals," said Tottenham goalkeeper. The tricolor choice will now turn to Euro-2020, which starts in March, and the teams' draw is scheduled for December 2 in Dublin.

Prepare for the future

But before that, will be the last friendly game to play on Tuesday (21H00) at Stade de France against Uruguay Luis Suarez and Edison Cavani. "This is our last trip in 2018 and we can not afford to end a good year with a negative result," said Killian from Papa on Sunday.

France-Uruguay is a remake of the quarter-finals won the Summer Blues in the World Cup (2-0). But Suarez, the Barcelona striker, does not see the material for Celeste. "These two games are completely different," Tuesday is friendly where "you just have to enjoy" and try to offer a "good show," said former Liverpool striker.

A victory at Stade de France is in the ropes of Uruguay. "We can win France because we can win any opponent of the elite: respect for the quality of the opponent, and the knowledge that we have strong points," he said.

Among these highlights is Edinson Cavani. The striker of Paris SG, injured for injury during the World Cup shock, is expected on Tuesday on the lawn of San Denis. The Uruguayan coach, Oscar Tavares, will swim without defense, goalie Fernando Muslara and his central midfielder Diego Godin and Jose Maria Gimenez.

On the side of the Blues, the Deschamps can take advantage of this game without a challenge, where six modifications are allowed during the game, offering a first selection on the left Lyon Freeland Mendy striker striker Mönchengladbach Alasane Pléa. And give a little more time to play the promising relationship OL Tangy Ndombélé.

This will be the way for the coach, already, to prepare for the future.
