While several key players in the French squad are uncertain or have already lost in the next gathering of the Blues (Paul Pogba, N’Golo Kante, Karim Benzema…), Didier Deschamps could call up several new items in his last roster ahead of the World Cup. in Qatar by the end of 2022.
In addition to Marseille Valentin Rongerer, who was pre-selected by Didier Deschamps for this Thursday, the national coach sent a pre-invitation to two Rennes virgins of any selection, Martin Terrier (25) and Benjamin Beaurigaud (28), as well as Steve Mandanda the regular ( 37 international matches and 34 international matches). Didier Deschamps is still in the French league, according to the information he transmitted the teamName the Monaco players, not to mention Wissam Ben Yedder, a striker the coach regularly calls up.
Desisi in defence, Fofana in the middle?
The regular Monaco captain at the start of the season, while Wissam Ben Yedder passes off the bench, Axel Desassi, who was called up this summer by Paris Saint-Germain, is called up beforehand to the Blues. A very tall defender (1.90 m) who comes out of a good season (45 games, 3 goals) and starts the news well (10 games, 1 goal, 2 assists), has passed through the youth teams of the French national team, without making the move with A. May That will be the case on Thursday, even if the competition for his position is particularly tough with the Blues (Lucas Hernandez, Raphael Varane, Jules Conde, William Saliba, Dayot Opicano, even right-back Benjamin Pavard).
His fellow midfielder, Youssef Fofana, also received a call-up earlier, after seducing Didier Deschamps. Despite the competition, Yusuf Fofana appears to have a better chance of being called up than Axel Desassi, while two key players in the middle will be absent (Paul Pogba, N’Golo Kante). This should leave room for a few new players, or former players called up to the Blues who have since disappeared, like Jordan Veretout (OM).
The Monaco midfielder, who was recruited in January 2020 in Strasbourg, has made a good start to the season (9 matches, 1 goal) with the Principality Club.
