Didier Deschamps will remain as France’s coach after receiving praise from the head of the country’s soccer federation for leading the team “in the best possible way” at the European Championship.

France lost 2-1 to Spain in the semifinals on Tuesday, which marked a disappointing tournament for Kylian Mbappé and his teammates.

However, in an interview with French daily L’Equipe on Wednesday, Philippe Diallo said Deschamps met the goals set before the tournament — reaching the semifinals — and will continue in his role as coach.

Deschamps, who took charge after Euro 2012, has a contract until 2026.

“I don’t see any reason to reconsider his contract,” Diallo said. “The past results are in his favor and the goals have been met. Didier will carry on with his mission.”

“The overall assessment is mostly positive because we achieved the goal of reaching the semifinals.”

France faced criticism for their pragmatic playing style at Euro 2024, with Randal Kolo Muani’s header against Spain being the team’s sole goal from open play scored by a French player throughout the tournament.

Under Deschamps, France won the 2018 World Cup, reached the final in 2022, and also made it to the Euro 2016 final.
