What the coaches say
Portugal coach Fernando Santos : "There is a clear goal to reach the last four and try to defend the championship. We can take the opportunity to look at the players in our extended roster. Paulinho and Pedro Neto are part of that. It's a list of 40 or 50 players that I think are all very good. There are none that I don't trust or have quality."
France coach Didier Deschamps : "I wouldn't say there is a risk of burnout, but fitness is something to be reckoned with. In the past weeks, players have played in nine games: every three days, including European competitions. I can't say I wasn't relieved when I saw one of the international players start on the club's bench! We adapt to the sanitary situation, so we prepare also psychologically: for example, having to play in empty stadiums."
