And he continued: “You start to win and that is another thing, in the match against Croatia until the first goal we were great, and against France, when we went 2-1, Pavard scored from outside the area a great goal, if we had lasted a little longer, it would have been different. But we were really in a bad shape.”
He concluded: “I still think that if we won the first game it would have been different, we have to go little by little, we are fine, we have a lot of desire, but people have to enjoy themselves, it’s the World Cup, you have to enjoy every game.”
