Ousmane Dembele Earns Praise From National Team Boss - 'On The Right Track'

Ousmane Dembele is on the right track according to France coach, Didier Deschamps.

Les Blues put two goals past Kazakhstan after drawing their first World Cup qualifier against Ukraine.

Dembele was on target for the visitors to help France grab their seventh consecutive away victory. Asked for his thoughts on the displays of Dembele and Martial, Deschamps told a news conference, “They did some interesting things.

“Ousmane confirmed that he is on the right track. He is capable of repeating efforts and of differing his play. He was rewarded with this goal.

“Anthony is behind the first goal. It’s good for both. From the moment I take them [in the squad] it is to use them. I have other attackers, but compared to the profile of the opponent, it was important to provoke and to dribble [at the opposition]. They did it pretty well.”

“Everyone is free to wait for what they want. The France team is efficient and continues to be,” he said.

“We do a lot of good things. There were no big scores [on Saturday] either. It is not easy for anyone. There is the opponent, the sequence of matches, plus everything that came before. These are not excuses. I told the players to do the job, to win. We won.

“There were nine new players from the match against Ukraine, but they already had experience. I’m not going to take away the credit. The qualifying games are always difficult, the main thing is to reach our goals.”
