Mike Maignan – 7/10

Stable, excellent position He made important saves to help the team not concede a goal in the first half.

Theo Hernandez – 7/10

His speed forces opponents to draw fouls. He adds a fierce and exciting attack.

William Saliba – 7/10

Dayot Upamecano – 7/10

Saliba worked as hard defensively as he made 7 clearances.

Jules Kounde – 7/10

Continuously adding to the ยูฟ่าเบท game Support the attacking game on the starboard side. And played with Dembele

throughout the game. He stood and organized the defense well, was focused, and didn’t let the opponent pass easily.

Adrien Rabiot – 7/10

Almost gave the team the lead in the 18th minute. He was involved in both attack and defense. He intercepted the ball and made good transitions from defense to attack.

N’Golo Kante – 8/10

After being absent for almost two years, this time he returned and started right away.

He was the “Man of the Match” in this match. He was everywhere on the field, running tirelessly, intercepting the ball and helping with defense many times, especially when he ran down to help intercept the ball at the end of the game. He was involved in both defense and offense. That is the reason why Didier Deschamps called him back to the national team again.

Antoine Griezmann – 6/10

Waiting to connect to the game and coordinate with offensive players But he lost the ball too often.

Markus Thuram – 6/10

Start by standing forward on the left side of the line. Before switching positions with Mbappe to stand as the target spearhead instead. And then returned to stand on the left side of the line as usual after the first 10 minutes of the game. In

the first half, he didn’t have much of a role. But in the second half, he had a chance to score to put the team 2-0 away, but went to save Patrick Pentz.

Ousmane Dembele – 6/10

He was flashy and drew many fouls from his opponents, but overall he wasn’t very impressive.

Kylian Mbappe (Captain) – 6.5/10

There was a chance to score to give the team an early lead in the first 10 minutes, but it didn’t get past the Austrian goalkeeper.

However, he helped the team score a goal at the end of the first half. From the moment the ball was launched into the danger zone and it was Maximilian Wuber, the Austrian defender, who headed into his own goal.

Ten minutes into the second half, he had a chance to break free. But the shot went off target incredibly. He should be named as the scorer in this match.

Backup used

Randal Golo Mouani (in place of Dembele 71) – 5/10

There was approximately 19 minutes of time on the field, touching the ball a total of 16 times, but some moments were still a bit lacking.

Eduardo Camavinga (in place of Rabiot, 71) – 6/10

Olivier Giroud (in place of Mbappe, 90+1) – 5/10

There isn’t much time in the field. But he was able to get a yellow card from his opponent at the end of the game. He should have scored a late goal for the team in injury time. But it’s such a slow shot.

Yussuf Fofana (replaced Griezmann 90+1′) – 5/10

Despite not having much time on the pitch, he made one clearance, one tackle and one interception.
