Michelle bets on her
“The French national team is the clear favorite of Euro 2020. And not only because it is the reigning world champion. players of the highest level, this is a well-coordinated, well-staffed team, “the ex-president of UEFA said the other day.
At the same time, like most local football fans, and among them, by the way, is the president of the country Emmanuel Macron,” Platos “, as his friends call him, enthusiastically welcomed Karim Benzema’s return to the national team after a six-year hiatus.
” Karim is a very, very cool player. , a very good player, “Platini is convinced.
Speaking about the upcoming battles, and first of all about the match with the German national team in Munich, he anticipates with undisguised pleasure the synergy between Karim Benzima and Kilian Mbappé. “I think that the Benzema-Mbappe duo will be great. And Karim himself will show what he is capable of and create conditions for Mbappe’s star game,” Platini shared with reporters.
Among other teams, he noted the Belgians, the British and not bad commented on the Germans, stressing that they have “good youth.”
I must say that the forecast of the great French footballer does not disagree with the estimates of local bookmakers and other online platforms. The most popular of them foresees not only the participation of the Blues in the final of the championship, but also their victory.
How and where will the French cheer for their favorites? The vast majority are at home in front of their TV screens, as well as in bars. But what about the fan zones? Due to the nefarious coronavirus, although the epidemic is now on the decline in France, the Ministry of Youth and Sports has imposed rather strict restrictions. In cities, it is allowed to create fan zones for no more than five thousand people. Moreover, we are talking exclusively about sitting places, and the chairs are ordered to be arranged in such a way that there is a distance of one and a half to two meters between them.
Moreover, everyone should present a “sanitary pass” – and this is a negative PCR test, a certificate stating whether a person has been ill with covid or has been vaccinated. Moreover, masks and gels are mandatory for everyone.
Only from July 1, when the next stage of the abolition of sanitary measures begins, the public will be allowed to stand ill. The passes will remain until the very end of Euro 2020.
Needless to say that in many cities of the country, due to these rules, local authorities will not organize any fan zones at all. This decision has already been made in Avignon, Lens, Lille. As for Paris, the fan zone will appear here only when the participants of the quarterfinals are determined. Most likely on the Champ de Mars by the Eiffel Tower. But in Toulouse in the south-west of the country, this will only be done if the French national team reaches the semifinals. XX century according to the legendary edition of France Football. In 2011, he was named the best foreign player in Italian football.
As a player, Platini made history as the only footballer to have won the Ballon d’Or award three years in a row (1983, 1984, 1985).
As part of the French national team, Michel became the European champion in 1984. At that tournament, the striker scored nine goals: this achievement, in terms of the number of goals at a single Euro, has not yet been surpassed. Already being the coach of the “tricolors”, he reached the semifinals of Euro 1992 with them.
In 2007 he was elected president of UEFA. It was his idea to host Euro 2020 in different cities of the continent. Currently Michel Platini is an advisor to the President of the International Association of Professional Football Players.
