You noticed the Blues' match against Portugal: Maignan is tremendous, Mbappe is out of form

In keeping with the disappointing Euros, Antoine Griezmann, positioned as number 10 in the 4-4-2 diamond, was not a big part of the match (0 key passes, only 1 shot blocked). Griezmann still gets a better rating from you (4.1) than the newspaper, where he got 3. And Kylian Mbappé didn't escape your votes either. He got a rating of 3.2, the worst of all in the team, at the end of the match where he wasn't very dangerous, lacked creative ideas and finishing quality. Our editorial team went even further, giving him 2.

The rest of the team is doing much better: Eduardo Camavinga and N'Golo Kanté have good marks, even better than the latter mentioned in the paper. But above all it is the defence that is rewarded.

A strong point of the Blues since the start of the Euros (only one goal conceded, a penalty that was withdrawn), this sector stood out again on Friday, and your comments reflect this situation. In addition to the complete success in shooting on goal, Jules Kounde (6.5) and Theo Hernandez (6.7) made several important interventions that deserve good marks according to you, while our journalists preferred to highlight the difficulties they sometimes had against the players of the Portuguese team (4 for Barcelona and 5 for Milan).

William Saliba managed to muzzle Cristiano Ronaldo and made several decisive interventions, scoring a fantastic 7.1 points (and even 8 in the newspaper). But for you, Mike Maignan remains the key piece. Even if he did not stop a shot on goal, such as Joao Felix's that hit the post, the Milan goalkeeper managed to reassure his defense with his games, and above all he made several very important saves (61, 63, 120). I gave it an 8, the same as our editorial team.

For his part, Ousmane Dembélé was named man of the match by UEFA, having played for almost fifty minutes by their standards, and was very influential and dangerous on his part even if he always made mistakes in the last gesture. He got a 7 in the newspaper, and only 5.9 according to your votes. Finally, Didier Deschamps will not erase the criticisms directed at his restricted style of play, but the result is still there, which justifies his rating of 5 in your eyes (6 in the team).
