Payet Skill

West Ham United star Dimitri Payet has been praised by France boss Didier Deschamps.

France boss Didier Deschamps has told a press conference, as seen above, that he felt Dimitri Payet was 'very good' against the Netherlands on Friday night.

France took on the Netherlands at the Amsterdam Arena on Friday evening, as Deschamps' men gear up for their home European Championships campaign.

Goals from Antoine Griezmann and Olivier Giroud put France 2-0 up in the Dutch capital, but Luuk de Jong and Ibrahim Afellay hit back to make it 2-2, before Blaise Matuidi struck a late winner for France.

The game also saw West Ham star Dimitri Payet play the full 90 minutes, having failed to appear for France since featuring in the 1-0 defeat to Albania last summer.

The 28-year-old has been simply outstanding in his maiden season for West Ham, notching 11 goals and eight assists to put himself in contention for the Player of the Year award.

Payet's displays have been rewarded with a recall to the French side, and having started in Amsterdam, manager Deschamps spoke to the press after the game about his performance.

Deschamps admitted that Payet was 'very good', and commented on his quality on the ball and from set pieces, and showed that he can perform just as well for his country as he does for West Ham.

"Payet was very good," said Deschamps. "Every time he touched the ball he made a difference. Dribbles, free-kicks, he has a lot of quality. He confirmed that he can do for us what he's been doing for his club. He also he trained well, he is in great form," he added.
