To quote my fictional coach, Marcus da Díxon in chapter 14 of Les Bleus! The Path to Euro 2016:
“We’re Les Bleus and we’re not going to let outsiders come here and steal our joy, our hopes, our desires, our triumph. We’re Les Bleus and we’re going to have the last word when it comes to ruling the tournament. We’re Les Bleus and this is our house. No one is going to kick us out of our very own home. So, let’s go out there and win.”
Thank you, Les Bleus for getting the job done by eliminating Germany in the semis. We’re in the finals, but it’s a far cry from being over. The toughest is yet to come.
