The French President Emmanuel Macron met the national football team in their training center in Clairefontaine on Tuesday and told them:
“Stay united, always focus on the effort, which is what got you here, have confidence and give others confidence,” Macron said. “You know how to do the rest better than me.”
Macron also added :
“I have said that I will come find you when you win the quarter-finals, and I said ‘when’ not ‘if,’”
It is worth noting that the presidential visit to France National team ahead of a World Cup has become a ritual for French leaders since the visit of Jacques Chirac before the 1998 tournament.
