Rayan Cherki scored points when he came into play.
Despite the victories against Italy (2-1) and Norway (1-0), the France Espoirs team did not seduce for its debut in the Euro. Coach Sylvain Ripoll recognizes the difficulties of the Bleuets in the game. And could decide to modify his system in favor of Rayan Cherki.
« I don’t see a team (in the Euro, editor’s note) that plays less well» . After the victory against Italy (2-1) last Thursday, Rolland Courbis was not kind to the France Espoirs team.
And the comments are not more laudatory following the success against Norway (1-0) on Sunday. On the contrary.
Di Meco goes after Ripoll
« With the names in this team, it’s not normal to be bored, complained Eric Di Meco, another RMC consultant. I think there is a way to do better and it’s not just the kids’ fault.»
Blueberries coach Sylvain Ripoll is a targeted problem. Moreover, the technician has not validated the content of the first two matches of the Euro either. The tricolor coach has a constant lack « in the use of the ball, in the changes of rhythm“, and players”much too hesitant to create shifts» . Either all that Rayan Cherki can provide.
Cherki’s successful entries
Entering the game for the last half-hours of the two meetings, the attacking midfielder effectively brought his creativity through his dribbling, transmissions and risk-taking. The Lyonnais had some waste in his game, but remains on the spear of his club performance. The pure Rhone product can thus claim a first start against Switzerland on Wednesday (8:45 p.m.), a match not to be lost in order not to risk elimination.
The problem for Cherki is that his presence on the pitch means abandoning Ripoll’s 4-3-3 for a less solid 4-2-3-1. Unless number 10 is aligned on the right, a lane that Michael Olise, package until the end of the tournament, will no longer occupy. In any case, after the duel against the Italians, some Bleuets already seemed in favor of this change of system.
Chevalier likes the « fantasy » of the Lyonnais
« With a number 10, under the press a little, commented on the right side Pierre Kalulu. It brings an extra offensive player, even if we are more open defensively.“For his part, the goalkeeper Lucas Chevalier had feasted after the entry of the playmaker.Rayan, it’s a bit futsal, it’s very technical, with fantasy, Lille was prosperous. So it’s different.“Creating differences is what Les Bleuets need to get out of this stereotypical game.
