After France defeated Croatia, Griezmann thanked Deschamps for his trust in him and the way he used it in an interview. Spanish media such as Marca interpreted his speech as a response to Koman.
After the Barcelona and Sevilla game, Koeman once said that Griezmann had two good opportunities in this game and he should score at least one goal with the grid's ability.
Griezmann said after the French team game: "Deschamps knows where to put me, so I took advantage of this situation. The coach and teammates have confidence in me."
"I think this is one of the most beautiful goals I have ever scored. I try to hit the spot exactly. When I shoot, I think it doesn't matter if I get into the stands."
"The situation of this game is very complicated, the viewing is not very good, and the venue is also very difficult. This opponent is what we have to defeat, and the most important thing is to win. We proved that the team is very good on the defensive end, but on offense. They can seize every opportunity to score."
They all think that Grid's speech is a response to Koman.
