LE SCAN SPORT – On the set of Canal +, the former right side of PSG and the Blues tells how he thought he would be a starter for the third group match of the Blues at the 2014 World Cup, against Ecuador.
An anecdote that makes you smile. Present on the set of Canal + as a consultant for the World Cup in Qatar, Christophe Jallet told how, the space of half a day, he thought of starting a match of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. It was the Blues’ third group game against Ecuador (0-0). Didier Deschamps had rotated, as will probably be the case this Wednesday against Tunisia (4:00 p.m.).
It was actually Blaise Matuidi who put this idea in his head. “During the day, there is Blaise (Matuidi) who comes to see me and who says to me: Jaja, you are a regular tonight“Says the former PSG side. The latter at first finds it hard to believe, but his teammate insists: “Yes, you’re going to play, that’s for sure!».
Once in his room, Jallet turns on the TV and comes across a program from Equipe TV announcing that he will be a regular. Hope soars… Before descending immediately: “Ten minutes later, team announcement, I see Bacary Sagna playing on the right!»
