Deschamps also insisted his side have their feet firmly on the ground ahead of the final.

"The tears have dried from Euro 2016 but it's still there in a little corner of people's minds", midfielder Blaise Matuidi said at the team base in Istra on Friday.

Speaking after the defeat against Belgium, the Tottenham striker said: "It shows we had a very good group stage, scored a lot of goals". We will face a high-quality opponent and they deserve as much credit as we do.
