France star Antoine Griezmann not happy with Zinedine Zidane inspired nickname

Paul Pogba

The ex-Super Eagles winger, who is a member of FIFA's Technical Study Group, said that France are the favorites to win the final due to their influential midfielder, N'Golo Kanté. Griezmann asked in his pre-match press conference.

Courtois said: 'It's just an anti-football team. Their striker plays 30 metres from his own goal.

'France heads a corner and does nothing more than defend.

"He played at Atletico and won a league title".

However, Griezmann insists that all his team cares about is winning the tournament.

Xherdan Shaqiri Set For Liverpool Medical As Deal Agreed With Stoke City
Matt Le Tissier isn't fully convinced by Stoke City's Xherdan Shaqiri , as he reportedly edges closer to joining Liverpool . Speaking after the announcement of the signing, Klopp described the move for the winger as a "no-brainer" for Liverpool .

But Griezmann, who is likely to spearhead France's attack alongside Olivier Giroud in Moscow on Sunday, reminded Courtois that Chelsea, under their now former manager Antonio Conte, were hardly famed for free-flowing attacking football.

"Does Thibaut Courtois think he plays Barcelona football at Chelsea?". "I want a second star to be on this shirt, and if I have the star, I do not care about the game we have done".

The Atletico Madrid forward was just seven years old when Zidane scored twice to help France lift the World Cup on home soil in 1998, and 20 years later Griezmann has been hailed as one of the country's talismanic figures in Russian Federation. He scored a penalty in a 2-1 home defeat at the Wanda Metropolitano after failing to net in a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge.

"The semi-final was one game", he added, with Les Bleus to face Croatia in Sunday's final after Mario Mandzukic's extra-time goal secured a 2-1 victory over England on Wednesday.
