Dembele spoke about his role in the French National team, playing with Mbappe, his relationship with Pavard and Koundé, his best game for France and the chances of France in the World Cup.

Dembele on playing for the French National team:

“Over the years, things are much better for me in Blue, on and off the pitch. I feel very good, and I always try to have fun.”

Dembele on his role in French NT:

“This game against Denmark is perhaps my best game in Blue. The coach asks me to sow danger, and chaos in defense. And I try to play this role.”

“The coach always tells me to make defensive efforts. It’s important to do so, especially in this competition.”

Dembele on playing with Mbappe:

“With Kylian, we feel good and it’s easy to find him, he moves so well. We know everything he can bring us.”

Dembele on his relationship with Pavard and Koundé:

“Pavard and Koundé are very good full-backs, they understand the defensive or attacking game very well, to free up space for me. We talk to each other a lot on and off the pitch.”

Dembele on the chances of France in the WC:

“We don’t know what can happen, but we hope to go as far as possible. We believe in this team.”
