Antoine Griezmann’s importance to the French national team goes beyond words. The fact that he hasn’t missed a game since June 2017 is nothing short of amazing.
To put that into perspective, he has played in 81 consecutive matches, including competitive and friendly matches.
This incredible series has set a new standard internationally.
The coach of France, Didier Deschamps, has recently spoken big words about the star of his team and Atletico.
“Antoine, he has something extra, he has always been a very important player, I have always kept my faith in him in much more difficult periods for him.”
“Antoine, with what he does on the pitch, he is a key pillar in the sense of being a motor. He was and will remain so in the future,” said Deschamps.
