‘My wife was the cause of my Penalty miss’
French Striker and Barcelona Forward Antonio Griezmann has given his words when asked why he missed a penalty against Albania during their last European Championship qualifiers match against Albania.
A brace from Kingsley Coman and Goals from Olivier Giroud and Jonathan Ikone was enough for France to defeat their Albania opponent by 4-1.
One of the sad highlight of the match was Antionne Griezmann penalty miss in the 37th minute which jokingly said his wife absence during match was the reason.
Asked about his penalty miss, the Barcelona attacker said: “I don’t know [what happened]. I don’t know
“As I said earlier, maybe it’s because my wife didn’t watch the game!
“I was on a good dynamic but we can’t score every time. Too bad, I’ll have to work on it.”
However, the striker was delighted about the French squad perfomance during the match.
“We were missing important players, whether on the field or in the locker room,” he said. “The players who played in their place did it very well.
“We are on the right track and it shows that we are a group. We had a good game game. We can only regret the goal we conceded at the end.”
