France boss Didier Deschamps says he is planning to talk to Antoine Griezmann about penalties following his two misses for France over the international break.

The Barcelona striker had never missed from the spot for the national team until this week but failed with efforts against Albania and Andorra.

Deschamps wants to have a chat with the 28-year-old ahead of France’s crucial qualifiers against Iceland and Turkey in October.

“Antoine, he doesn’t gamble. When he had to score them, he scored them,” he told a press conference after the match.

”When they were decisive, he didn’t tremble. It remains two failures.

”I will talk about it perhaps with him knowing, if there is another to shoot in October, he’ll be there.”

Griezmann will now return to Barcelona, and the Spanish champions will hope he can rediscover his goalscoring touch with Valencia up next in La Liga.

Barcelona could be without Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez again for the game, meaning there will be pressure on Griezmann to deliver the goods on Saturday night.
