Just back from international duty with the French national team, Jérémy Ménez looks back at his performances with Les Bleus and ahead to Friday's Ligue 1 clash at home to Toulouse.
Jérémy, how was the camp with Les Bleus?
"It was very positive, even if I only played one whole match and then three minutes against Belarus. It's not easy because with PSG I play up front and with the national team I'm on the right. I'm not quite as comfortable, but I do whatever I can for the team."
Against Belarus, your PSG teammate Christophe Jallet scored a superb goal…
"I spoke to him about it and he admits he didn't do it on purpose. But he deserves it all the same given all his work for PSG. It's not easy to do what he did. Normally, when you try to score from there, the ball flies over. I'm very happy for him."
Can we say that Les Bleus have prepared ideally for the next game against Spain?
"It's obviously very good to have got six points from two games. Above and beyond that, they were two good games played with the right attitude, which is what everyone was expecting from us. We can compete with Spain, even if it won't be easy. We are confident and will do everything to win that match."
Is the international break an advantage or a handicap in terms of Friday's match against Toulouse at the Parc des Princes?
"It was a good break because we came off the back of a win over Lille. It was a different scene, new faces and we return to our respective clubs fresh and motivated. We are desperate to beat Toulouse and go on a run of wins."
