Yoris hyung, rest in peace… France’s next gatekeeper Menann, active in PK defense
After the French national team ended the Hugo Lloris system and switched to the Mike Menan system, they confirmed the new goalkeeper’s capabilities from the first game.
On the 25th (Korean time) at the Stade de France in Saint-Denis, France, France, which had the first leg of Group B of the Euro 2024 qualifiers, won 4-0 over the Netherlands and moved to the top of the group. On the same day, Greece beat Gibraltar to finish second in the group. The Netherlands start qualifying at the bottom of their group.
It was a game in which France overpowered the Netherlands, but the Netherlands did not lose control of the match. The Netherlands had a higher share, at 59%. The shots were 12 times in France and 11 times in the Netherlands, and there was not a big difference. The effective shots were 8 times in France and 5 times in the Netherlands. 먹튀검증
Menan blocked all five shots from the Netherlands, allowing France to win the game without conceding a goal. In particular, the penalty kick saved in extra time in the second half was decisive. Memphis DePhi came out as a kicker, and DePhi again caught the ball that bounced after Menyang made a save.
After the last ‘2022 Qatar World Cup’, Lloris announced his retirement after 145 A matches. Hugeza was Menang, who had already been evaluated as surpassing Lloris in terms of skills. Menann was selected as the league’s best goalkeeper last season, helping AC Milan win the championship with an overwhelming performance in Italy’s Serie A. He missed the World Cup due to injury.
Coach Didier Deschamps openly declared, “The next starting player is Menann” in response to the call-up of the representative. As backups for the 28-year-old Menang, older Bris Samba (Lance) and Alphonse Areola (West Ham United) were selected.
Because the Lloris system was so stable, Menann’s previous A-match appearances were only 5 times. He played perfectly in his 6th match and his first match as a starter. France succeeded in changing the generation of the goalkeeper in just one game.
