Griezmann opens up on Albania anthem confusion
- France beat Albania, 4-1.
- The clash in Paris was delayed as they played a wrong anthem before the clash.
- Antoine admits it's rather an unpleasant surprise to come across.
Despite achieving a solid win over Euro-2020 group rivals, France have slipped in keeping things well organised ahead of the match.
As Albania were lining up for the national anthem, France officials put on Andorra's anthem, scandalising almost everyone. The right anthem was eventually found but Antoine Griezmann admits this was hardly a pleasant situation:
"We were very surprised. We were a little shocked," Barcelona striker said.
"It's a big mistake that must not be repeated.
"We waited, and they got their anthem, but it would have hurt us too."
France are still a long way to go if they plan to reserve the direct EURO spot beforehand. However, they are still considered as the group favourites and they'll try to prove that in the decisive games against Iceland (October 11) and Turkey (October 14).
