Spain and France meet in the first semi-final clash of Euro 2024. The two teams have met on countless occasions, and on many occasions it has been France who have emerged victorious. The last time was in the 2021 UEFA Nations League final, which was decided by Kylian Mbappé with a goal that was possibly offside. It is expected to be a heated match. This atmosphere of pressure has already been seen in the press conferences prior to the match.

Adrien Rabiot praised Spain’s play but also spoke about the 16-year-old gem who has been dazzling with his performances at the Euros. The 29-year-old midfielder said that it is up to the French to make him feel the pressure of the match: “We have to make him feel that to play in a Euro final he has to do much more than he has done so far.”

«He is a player who handles pressure well, who has quality, who plays well with his national team and his club. It is difficult to manage a semi-final, it is up to us to put pressure on him and make him uncomfortable. Lamine has taken these words as a challenge and, a few hours later, he published a message on his Instagram with the phrase: »Move in silence, only speak when it is time to say checkmate«.

Lamine is the top assist-maker at the European Championships and will be keen to beat the French after their last encounter in the semi-finals of the Under-17 European Championships, which ended in a 1-3 defeat for Spain thanks to a great goal from outside the area.
