Ibrahima Konate of Liverpool put in an “imperious” display for France against Australia in their World Cup opener on Tuesday.

Konate moving in the right direction in the World Cup?

After defeating the Socceroos, the current champions have already taken a step toward the elimination rounds. They did, however, have to bounce back from an early failure in their curtain-raiser.

The team of Didier Deschamps fell behind 1-0. And they came agonizingly close to giving up another goal from a distance. Fortunately for the French, their fearsome offensive prowess won the day, and they eventually prevailed 4-1.

Konate appeared to be having a wonderful time. The William Saliba starter was passed up in favor of the Liverpool star. Additionally, he appeared to work well with Dayot Upamecano.

However,  Get French Football News, on RMC Sport only rated his display at 5/10.

According to The Guardian, he shone. They rated him an 8 out of 10. The Daily Mail, meanwhile, called his conflict with Mitch Duke “fascinating.”

However, some of the French outlets had a slightly different perspective on his exhibition. Thus, rating the Liverpool defender only 5 out 10.

The Future games for France

Holders In their Group D opening at the Al Janoub Stadium, France overcame a spirited Australia, and Olivier Giroud scored twice to tie Thierry Henry’s record of 51 goals for the country.

France, which was suffering from injuries, started to show early symptoms of vulnerability; nine minutes later, they were down. Harry Souttar’s excellent long pass set up the move by bringing Mathew Leckie in from the right side. Craig Goodwin quickly arrived at the far post in response to a low cross, and the winger blasted high past Hugo Lloris.

The current champions, who courageously recovered from the shock of going behind early to begin Group D in style, have a final, easy victory.

Konate would feel unfairly treated if he is not selected for the team’s match against Denmark. Deschamps could, however, be persuaded to alter.

Saliba, Jules Kounde, and Raphael Varane are other members of Les Bleus. So, at this point in the competition, rotating the side would make sense.

Konate deserves a lot of praise. Interestingly, it was only his third appearance for his nation. In the end, it turned out to be a good night for the French.
