Coach of the French team from 1976 to 1984, Michel Hidalgo died, Thursday, March 26, at the age of 87. In a tweet posted at the beginning of the afternoon, Jean-Claude Darmon was one of the first to pay tribute to him: “Michel Hidalgo left us, without suffering, in peace. Goodbye My friend. You are the one who gave hope to French football. After a career as a very great player, you gave our football the credibility and the first title of European champion. Farewell, the artist. “

“Nuit de Seville” and first international title of the French team

Born March 22, 1933 in Leffrinckoucke, in the North, he was an international footballer – a selection with the Blues – in the years 1950-1960 through the clubs of Monaco, Stade de Reims and Le Havre. But his name remains anchored in French football legend for having been coach of the France team during the 1982 World Cup and this semi-final against the FRG, the “Seville night”, lost to the shots in goal 5 to 4 (after a draw of 3 goals everywhere after extra time).

Two years later, he directed the Blues of Michel Platini, during the 1984 European Championship of Nations, organized in France. By winning in the final against Spain (2-0), he offered France his first international title.
