11:45 – FIFA is currently playing
This is a case that FIFA would like to avoid and that it does not know how to get out of. Indeed, two days after the French Football Federation (FFF) filed a complaint to challenge the annulment of Antoine Griezmann’s equalizer against Tunisia, the football world has still not given any answer and seems to want to save time when faced with a difficult subject because it touches on a statutory void. In their final group game, France, led by Tunisia, managed to equalize at the last second thanks to the Mâcon native. In the process, the referee had given a commitment to the Tunisians and whistled the end of the match. It was only then that he was called by his video assistant to go and consult the images of the target. After watching, he believed that Griezmann was offside at the start of the match and therefore disallowed the goal. However, the rules stipulate that the use of VAR is only possible before the commitment is given. What about after the game ends? FIFA is still in the process of figuring out what follow-up to give to this case, which could set a precedent. No date has yet been announced for an official decision.
Present at a press conference yesterday, Didier Deschamps was asked how he would approach the round of 16 tie against Poland and whether he wanted to evoke the painful memory of the last Euros, when France were eliminated by Switzerland on penalties. Cuttingly, the trainer immediately evacuated the subject. “Talking about the past, I don’t see the point. If it’s just the players who were there at the time, the feelings they had, they won’t relive them. The only common point is that it’s a game 16. I don’t fall into a routine, nor do I intend to add to it, because if I add more, it will bring what I don’t want. no, that is, a little more stress, while we have our peace and our serenity”, he decided. Not a man to brood or dwell on the negative, Deschamps is intent on maintaining the freshness and confidence of a group currently in contention for this 2022 World Cup.
