This week I want to talk about french players who play in Europe.
As he did since the beginning of season, the french striker of Atletico Madrid, Antoine Griezmann, was once again the man of the match against Atletico Bilbao. He scored the winning goal at the end of the match. Kévin Gameiro, is the other french striker who did a great performance is spanish championship. He was the only scorer during the opposition between Sevilla and Gijon. 2 goals and a great performance for the ex-striker of Paris Saint-Germain.
Another french striker success this week : Olivier Giroud. After his great performance, a hat-trick (three goals in a row in the same match) against the greek team Olympiakos in Champions League last week, he scored another goal against Aston Villa. Finally, Yohan Cabaye, Crystal Place midfielder was breathtaking. “We had a masterclass in midfield with his performance”. This sentence of Alan Pardew, his coach, sum up his performance.
Whereas Tottenham leads against Newcastle, the french goalkeepper of Tottenham, Hugo Lloris, let in two goals. He was not irreproachable. Those two goals were avoidable.
Jérémy Mathieu, Barcelona’s defender had huge difficulties against La Corogne.
Finally, the three frenchies of Manchester City, Bacary Sagna, Eliaquim Mangala and Gaël Clichy, were first-team players. Even if Manchester City win its match, it was not fully comp insurance in defence.
That’s it for this week, see you next week.
