I don’t want to talk too much. We all know where we are. We all know what we want. We know the path we went through. In our hearts, in our eyes, I can see it, we are focused.

Guys, don’t forget, I might repeat myself, but we are only 90 minutes away from an amazing story. One game. I don’t know how many games we played in our careers, in our lives. But here, it is one game and it will change everything. It will change history.

There are two teams and one cup. It is the same for them, they want it. We lost a final, we know. We still have it here, here and here (showing hearts, guts and mind).

Today, we don’t let another team take what is ours. Today we look at each other and we don’t let another team take what is ours.

I want that tonight we make our place in every French person’s memory. And their kids, their grandkids… Today, 90 minutes to make it into history. For ever, for ever guys.

So now I am looking at you, I don’t want to shout. I want us to get on the field as warriors, leaders. And after I want to see tears, tears of joy not tears of sadness. Tears of joy on the field and all kissing each other, OK?
