Qatar 2022: That won’t help you – Udeze pinpoints why France fell to Argentina in World Cup final

 


Former Super Eagles defender, Ifeanyi Udeze has pinpointed one major reason France lost the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup final to Argentina.

According to Udeze, France’s approach to the match in the first half hurt them after all.

The game ended 3-3 after 120 minutes of football and was settled by penalty shootout where Argentina emerged victorious.

Udeze, a former West Brom defender, also noted that aside the Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo’s rivalry, most Africans supported France because most of their players have African roots.

“France’s approach in the beginning was wrong. They could have started the game with the intensity with which they played the second half,” he told Brila FM.

“The solution was to attack, attack and attack the Argentines. They were not supposed to relax if there was to be a change in fortunes earlier.

“They were playing ‘serere’ football and that wouldn’t help you.

“Aside from the Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo rivalry, a lot of Africans supported France because most of their players have African backgrounds.”
