The French team is now officially classified for the World Cup in Qatar. He will defend the throne harvested in 2018 and which will be, except for surprise, the last official Deschamps tournament at the head of the tricolor. ‘Les Bleus’ beat weak Kazakhstan 8-0 whose plan to defend during the 90 minutes fell as soon as the match began. Mbappé was the great star of the match with a hat-trick in just 30 minutes, consuming his poker in the final stretch, that practically left the Kazakhs without options. Coman also shone with two assists, establishing himself as a winger in the three-center system that seems to be the one Deschamps uses in the next World Cup.
Deschamps is a coach who never in his career used the three-center system as the dominant scheme in his approaches. Despite the setback against Switzerland in the European Championship, a game in which France was shipwrecked with a system of three centrals, the coach has settled a kind of 1-3-4-1-2 in which the three attackers, Griezmann, Benzema and Mbappé, have total freedom to move. Today the novelty was Coman, who acted as a lane on paper, preferring Deschamps to the former Juventus player over a Pavard that the season has not started in the best possible way.
France’s pulse did not tremble. In fact, the world champion went to rest with the game sentenced, led by an omnipresent Mbappé and a sensational Coman, that he is a player with a gigantic talent to mark the differences through dribbling. Mbappé put France ahead as soon as the game started, in a great braided play on the left wing that ended up finishing off Bondy’s pass from Theo Hernandez.
Having two players in the band like Theo and Coman is synonymous with danger. There was a time when France got stuck against rivals like Kazakhstan who came out to defend them for 90 minutes. With Theo and Coman it’s impossible. They are two players with an extraordinary imbalance and with a necessary speed in a France that plays with three centrals and it needs the breadth of its outside players.
With Mbappé’s permission, of course from his brutal first half, Coman was the best player in France. The Bayern man dribbled over the goalkeeper, Pokatilov, with overwhelming ease and assisted Mbappé, who finished first and made it 2-0 on the scoreboard when not even 15 minutes had elapsed in the Parc des Princes. Coman himself, unleashed by the talent he treasures and by the facilities that Kazakhstan put in, returned to attend Mbappé before the break, consummating the PSG player a hat-trick that places him with 22 goals in the national team with only 22 years. It is a matter of time before he surpasses the record of 51 that Thierry Henry still holds. Without sweating, France went to rest with the game sentenced.
In the second part, the hunger of France remained intact. Benzema’s party was missing, who had not been in tune in the first half, but who scored a double in the blink of an eye. The Real Madrid forward took advantage of another excellent pass from Theo to make it 4-0 and, a minute later, Mbappé gave him the fifth, in an elaborate collective play by Deschamps’ men. Benzema is already the fourth all-time top scorer for the national team, surpassing Trezeguet today with a double against Kazakhstan. Rabiot, with a header, Griezmann from a penalty and Mbappé consummating his poker, closed a historic win for Deschamps’ men, who are already qualified for the World Cup in Qatar.
