Joachin Low hailed the French national team’s ability to adapt to the game of their opponents ahead of the 2020 European Championship which is set to kick off on Friday.
France will face Germany in their tournament opener on June 15, as they are both in Group F along with another star-studded team in Portugal and underdogs Hungary.
“We know France very well,” Low told German agency SID.
“They are the best team in the world at adapting to their opponents. They are extremely flexible.
“They have amazing individual class and are difficult to predict.”
Low went on to hail Portugal’s attack and stressed that his team should be focused on their defensive duties in the match with Fernando Santos’ side.
“Portugal have great attacking strength, play at a very high level since 2016 and are a very homogeneous team,” Low added.
“Facing these opponents, you have to give your all, you can’t make mistakes. If your concentration is not at its maximum, they will exploit it mercilessly.
“Our defence has to be compact. Without losing our attacking drive, we must internalise this work in defence.”
Asked about his team’s attitude ahead of the tournament, Low expressed his confidence that his players will do what it takes to have a successful tournament.
“What I see in terms of energy and commitment in the team is excellent,” Low noted.
“The players are very ambitious and want to achieve good results. There is a good dynamic in the team.”
