International news: Deschamps to discuss penalties with Griezmann after latest miss for France

goal.com, Wed 11 Sep, 04:28
The Barcelona striker faces a frank discussion with the Les Bleus boss after his failure from the penalty spot against Andorra

France coach Didier Deschamps concedes he will talk to Antoine Griezmann about his duties from the penalty spot, but insists the forward still enjoys his full confidence for the time being.

Griezmann missed a second penalty in as many games, failing to convert in a 3-0 win over Andorra in Euro 2020 qualifying on Tuesday.

The 28-year-old also fluffed his lines from 12 yards during Les Bleus' 4-1 win over Albania on Saturday.

The Barcelona striker was far more convincing at last year's World Cup, converting three penalties during France's run to the title.

Those efforts have Deschamps upbeat about Griezmann from the spot, but the coach admitted he would hold talks with a talismanic figure.

"Antoine, he doesn't gamble. When he had to score them, he scored them," he told a press conference after the match.

"When they were decisive, he didn't tremble. It remains two failures.

"I will talk about it perhaps with him knowing, if there is another to shoot in October, he'll be there."

FULL-TIME. A solid win for Les Bleus.
