William Saliba hailed as 'boss' of France defence after shock Euro 2024 exit

French media kept up their praises of William Saliba as they rated his performance in France's shocking 2-1 defeat to Spain in the Euro 2024 semi-final.

Saliba has finally broken into Didier Deschamps' starting XI, putting up a series of exceptional displays for his country at the Euro.

Unfortunately, the journey ended on Tuesday but the Arsenal defender is earning rave reviews for his performance even though France lost to Spain.

L'Equipe: "What should we remember from his match? His header back into the middle towards Olmo? Or his effective bursts into the feet of the Olmo-Morata duo? Both. Attentive, he put impact into his interventions and cut off a few cross situations, notably in front of Morata. He was the most reliable defender."

Foot Mercato: "Exceptional during these Euros, he was pretty good tonight too. He cleared several dangerous balls in his area and was generally pretty clean with the ball."

FranceTV: "Once again, the central defender was very, very valuable. The Arsenal player asserted himself as the boss of the Blues’ defence in this Euro."
