Arsenal star handed a brutal rating after horror show for his country

Arsenal’s William Saliba has received consistent praise for his performances at the club, but his international career with the French national team has faced challenges.

Saliba has been a part of the French national team setup since his time at Olympique Marseille and has continued to receive call-ups. However, he has struggled to replicate his club form while playing for France.

In a recent match against Germany, Saliba’s performance came under scrutiny. While he did not make any glaring errors, France’s defence appeared disorganised, and Saliba was part of that struggle.

Following the game, L’Equipe, a prominent French sports newspaper, provided player ratings and gave Saliba a score of 4/10. This rating was attributed to his inability to provide the same stability in defence for the national team as he does at Arsenal, as reported by Sport Witness.

Not every player shines for their country as they do at their clubs, and Saliba simply shows what can happen to any player.

The tactics of both teams are different and he also has a different defensive partner in both cases.

The defender will remain a key player for us because he always does well in our colours, but we also expect him to become a superstar for the French team in the near future.

  1. The fact that Saliba did not have a great game for France can be attributed to the fact that he was played at left centre back, where he has never operated for Arsenal.Perhaps the French Manager should have considered this fact before he made his selection?

  2. “inability to provide the same stability in defence for the national team as he does at Arsenal” the reason for the rating is laughable. Systems, manager and players at Arsenal are different to the French national team. You can’t just drop in a player and expect similar performances

  3. Horror show? Not from what I saw. It was just a bad performance all round by the whole French team and Saliba wasn’t the worst on the night by any stretch. Bit of a click bait headline on my opinion.
