France and Croatia meet in UEFA Nations League Group A1 on Monday.
What the coaches say
Didier Deschamps, France coach: “We have to make sure we gather all our strength in order to conclude this international break well and win against Croatia. I’m not worried [about the 1-1 draw against Austria]. It is not the result we were hoping for, and we are not at the peak of our form or fitness, but we have given playing time to some younger players.”
Zlatko Dalić, Croatia coach:”I would like to repeat the commitment, approach, running, aggression and motivation from the last two games. This is what gives us the faith that we can achieve a good result and we have already shown that we can play against the strongest team in the world. The last three games against France we were consistently close to a good result.”
