The Real Madrid footballer wants more glory on the international stage and hopes Les Blues can win the 2020 European Championship

Real Madrid and France center-back Raphael Varane is aiming for more trophies in the next two years.

The 2018 FIFA World Cup winner wants his team to win the 2020 European Championship.

“It’s not a fault in football to be ambitious, far from it” he was quoted by Goal.

“We can win it, although it will be very difficult. There’s a lot expected of us, which we saw in our recent friendlies and in the League of Nations matches.”

“We cannot hide and we know that teams who play us will be very motivated. But we’re capable and we’re going to do everything to get there,” Varane added.

“We must take things day by day and not lose our heads.”

“This is a team that’s capable. Firstly because it’s young, but especially because it’s a squad capable of evolving,” he commented.

“We played in a certain way in the World Cup. But we can play in a totally different way next time. Keeping the same mindset, which is a strength.”
