    Your managerial "role model" ?

    I can't say he's my model or all-time favorite, but Didier Deschamps and the way he managed the French team at the WC is definitely a huge inspiration for me. I love his pragmatism, how he blended players with very different tactical backgrounds and made it work perfectly. He didn't pull any genius tactical trick, nor seemed to have a strong charisma. He simply built the most flexible team of the competition and allowed the best players to shine.
  2. to @Mutumba and @denen123 , I did not see France play in this formation but I am ok for things like Griezmann/Giroud, strikerless, etc. Until 30' it was very difficult for the team. Mbappe was meant to track back defensively on right wing and attack at the same time, it was impossible because of Hazard vs Pavard. Pogba and Griezmann helped tight up midfield after 5' and 10' occasions. I believe they went for a 433, but all around and defensively was 4132. The #1 route to goal (not counting free kicks or corners ) was Griezmann playing to Mbappe on right wing, combining with Giroud and Pavard occasionaly. Matuidi midly played as a Mezzala when Hernandez I believe who be a good ol FB(s). They made Belgium's right wing useless for the whole match. Kante is le facteur X of midfield, he defends like classic MD, but with the ball he sort of played segundo velante all by himself. Incredible player. (oh hello hi so this is my first post)
