France coach Didier Deschamps has played down any claims of a rift between Olivier Giroud and Kylian Mbappe.

There's reports of PSG striker Mbappe being furious with Chelsea veteran Giroud after post-match criticism last week.

But Deschamps said, "It's necessarily amplified. Olivier, like any striker, knows it has already happened that he does not receive the balls, it is a non-problem.

"If I summoned them? No, there is no need to. I discuss with them, with the other players as well. Today, whatever one says, the smallest word leads to interpretation and interpretation can be diverse and varied. The most important for me is the team."
