Antoine Griezmann takes swipe at Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman after France win
after scoring the first goal in France’s 2-1 victory of Croatia on Wednesday in the UEFA Nations League.
Griezmann started the game and scored the opening goal after just 11 minutes, with a neat finish from
inside the penalty area. When asked about his thoughts after the match by French media outlet L’Equipe,
the 29-year-old striker heaped praise on France manager Didier Deschamps for playing him in a central role.
“It was a complicated match, not a very good to watch, not very good to play either.
On a soft ground, it was difficult against an opponent who had to win.
We knew how to suffer and the most important thing is to win, to show that we are strong defensively.
Upfront, every small opportunity can be taken,” said Griezmann.
” I feel good. The coach knows where to play me, I took advantage of this situation, this place, and the
confidence of the coach and my teammates,” Griezmann added.
