Little excited about the League of Nations, Pierre Ménès is not particularly excited by the semi-final between Belgium and the France team on Thursday. Especially since the journalist believes that the two selections do not deserve their respective status.

As enticing as the match between Italy and Spain on Wednesday night, the second Nations League semi-final has raised expectations. It’s not every day that we see a confrontation between Belgium and the France team, two of the best teams in recent years. However, this shock expected in Turin does not excite Pierre Ménès at all. For starters, the journalist is not a big fan of this competition intended to replace trivial friendlies.

“This is m …” said the former headliner of the Canal Football Club, in an interview with DH Les Sports. But above all, Pierre Ménès notes that the two selections were not in their best shape. On the one hand, the Red Devils do not, according to him, deserve the status of number 1 in the FIFA rankings. And on the other hand, Didier Deschamps’s men are considered inferior to the Belgians. “The favorite between the France team and Belgium? Neither team stands out. Neither France nor Belgium won me over at the last Euro, ”replied the specialist.

“France has been even worse since then,” he said. And I find it hard to explain how the Belgians can stay ahead in FIFA for so long and never win anything. Was it decreed that the best generation of your football should stay on top of the standings until the end? For a moment, that would have to be reflected on the ground. It’s all well and good to have a great team but you have to win every now and then. But to answer your question, Belgium still seems to me superior to France at present. For their part, the world champions are only fourth in the FIFA rankings.
