He said, “Despite their former status and some inexperience at this level, Benjamin Pavard and Lucas [Hernandez] were brilliant and stabilised the defence,”
“These two fighters made a big difference. Benjamin has become a star and he deserves it. He’s not so media-focused. He’s very friendly, appreciated by his team-mates, and has an incredible amount of self-confidence.”
“He once said to me: ‘I’m not afraid of anyone!’ So I told him: ‘You can think that, but never say it to the media.'”
Deschamps has also spoken about Germany’s decision to retain their World cup winning coach, Joachim Low despite Germany’s early exit in the Group stage from the World cup in Russia. Germany finished last in their Group.
He said, “It will be a great pleasure for me [to see Low]. Continuity is very important for national teams… [it’s] better for the players and also the coach.”
