(Video) Konate’s crucial interception that helped France reach the World Cup final

Posted by

Ibou Konate is the final member of Jurgen Klopp’s squad to still be at the World Cup and he’s managed to get himself to the final, in no small part because he was a vital member of Didier Deschamps’ side’s victory over Morocco.

Starting in place of an illness stricken Dayot Upamecano, our No.5 made his third appearance in the competition and provided one of the moments of the match.

With the ball being fizzed in from the left-wing, the 23-year-old had to be fully aware of his surroundings and managed to readjust his body in time to slide and stop a certain goal.

Although many neutrals would have been rooting for the African side in the semi-final and for Lionel Messi in the grand finale – plenty of Reds will get behind our man and especially if he is given the start again against Argentina.
