Karim Benzema out, Olivier Giroud aging, the French team has perhaps found its number 9 for the years to come. In line with his last World Cup, Randal Kolo Muani, at the height of his 24 years, indeed scored points this Friday during the offensive festival of the Blues against the Netherlands (4-0). Aligned, for the second time, in the eleven of Didier Deschamps, the striker of Eintracht Frankfurt perfectly held his rank and thus offered a high-flying performance against the Oranjes.

Versatility at the service of the collective!

Alongside Kylian Mbappé, author of a double, and Kingsley Coman, more discreet, the former FC Nantes striker caused countless problems for the Dutch defense. Often surrounded by two or three Dutch players, the native of Bondy has nevertheless managed to make many differences. Whether by his deep holds or his accelerations in the left lane, the one who received the note of 7 by the editorial staff almost always played with Timber and Geertruida, helpless.

The future number 9 of the Blues?

“He’s been very interesting in everything he’s done, he’s got this ease of running, in dribbling, he’s able to clinch, be in depth, play to one side or the other… He confirms everything he has done after his World Cup. What he is doing with his club is very interesting. He is full of confidence and it is a different profile from Olivier Giroud or Marcus Thuram. It brings additional danger for the opponent., confided, as such, the French coach. Compliments also present in the speech of Aurélien Tchouaméni, aware of his contribution when presenting himself in the mixed zone.

“He responded present, he was interesting, we could find him between the lines, also in support. We also know that he is a deep player so when we are in difficulty we know that we can play a little longer to find him. He will surely tell you about his missed opportunity because he is a player who is meticulous but in any case he is satisfied with his performance.admitted the Real Madrid midfielder before seeing his remarks supplemented by those of his club teammate, Eduardo Camavinga: “He played a very good match, he was lively, mobile. I hope he will score his first goal with the France team very very quickly. Long haunted by his missed face to face against Emiliano Martinez’s Argentina during the last World Cup, Randal Kolo Muani could well take his revenge in the years to come…
