Real Madrid defender Raphaël Varane spoke to Canal + after France’s 2-0 defeat to England yesterday evening.
“All the way we were encouraged. It warmed our hearts to have the fans behind us. The atmosphere was heavy, unique. The group remained together. We spoke a lot and had conversations with each other and we tried to keep our heads high to represent the French shirt well. For us the best thing, it was to play. We had to stay united, the pitch allowed us all to clear our heads.”
