Head coach Guillaume Gille’s reaction

“You have to remember the difficulty of playing the opening match. There were a lot of ingredients to turn this match into a trap tonight: some pressure from the fans, some interesting refereeing decisions…T

All this did not allow us to improve our game. We showed a bit of fever and nervousness, which makes sense when we know that opening matches are rarely perfect.

This victory is very satisfying because it puts us on the right track, the blue train. We showed a lot of stability in defense, we conceded few goals in attack.

“Even if Luka had a strong impact on our defensive performance, we were able to find solutions and prevent them, especially in the second half.”

William Gilles:

“We tried to respect this Saudi Arabian team, we tried to respect each other and it wasn’t easy in preparation when you know the difference in level between the two teams.

We were very serious, although not everything is perfect, the overall copy is good, I think we did more than our job.

We respect some of our goals, such as giving everyone playing time, resting certain players, giving Charles his first international minutes, who could celebrate his first selection on the pitch.

I hope the ranks at the hospital have not increased. Unconsciously, this match was difficult to manage, the players were afraid of getting injured, always tempted to invest a little less.

“Probably it will be easier to dive into the game against Slovenia, it will be very important.”

William Gilles:

“This is a very good start to the World Cup, against opponents that are not easy to understand, it was a separate game, except for Saudi Arabia. These four points give us more opportunities, a small safety cushion.

But we know that we will play against very strong teams in the main round, we have to continue working on it. We know how scenarios can evolve very quickly with this competitive format.

Do these four points give us room for error? You must keep your feet on the ground. Dika Mem had a muscle contracture, which meant that he could not be available tonight, and we chose to protect him without taking any risks.

It is difficult to imagine when and how he will return, and on what date we will suddenly find him. In any case, we made up for the loss of his absence very well thanks to a great game from Nédim, who was very effective, and Kent, who had a great match.

William Gilles:

“We were able to spend all the playing time tonight, opening up the bench as usual. The first half did not allow us to separate, partly due to the quality of this team from Montenegro, but also due to certain stages on both sides. The field did not allow us to confirm our good performance.

We still have a good match to go into the main round in a good way. For newcomers, it is not easy to find the pace, sometimes it is a bit stressful, for them it is a matter of finding the rhythm.

But tonight we can take all positions, there is something to be satisfied with. After that, we will face the opponent Iran, which has been disappointed in recent days and we should win clearly.”
