New blood among the tricolors
Didier Deschamps Tomorrow he will have to announce his list for the next Blues gathering but will have to deal with the unprecedented wave of injuries that has hit the French in recent weeks. This wave can also be an opportunity to show off because there are places to be taken. First there is Ousmane Dembele, who is likely to return because he has been dazzling since the beginning of the season with Barça. Then, with the probable absence of Karim BenzemaDidier Deschamps should probably call his luxury prankster for the number 9 position: the indestructible Olivier Giroud, who is in all good moves with Milan this season. But the real nuisance for the coach is in defense where the absent are legion. There are resources but no certainty at the international level. This is the case with Wesley Fofana, recruited at a gold price by Chelsea this summer. There are also other options with players who have been on the rise lately such as mohamed simakan, Axel Disasi or Nordi Mukiele. Between, Eduardo Camavinga could come back. Benjamin Bourigeaud, who has received a pre-call, could be called for the first time. On the other hand there is Jordan Veretout who always gave satisfaction when the coach asked for it. Finally, up front Martin Terrier he may also see his name appear in the list of this gathering. This would therefore be an opportunity for Deschamps to test new faces to give himself more chances between now and the World Cup!
The long list of wounded French
The succession of matches since the resumption of the championships and the Champions League spares no one, and France sees its managers fall one after another. At the next match, the Blues will have to face Austria and Denmark in the League of Nations and Didier Deschamps will have to do without certain regular EDF holders. First of all Paul Pogba is a long-standing package, the midfielder suffers from knee and to hope to participate in the World Cup the race against time has already begun. In addition to the center of Juve, he will not be able to count Presnel Kimpembe, Kingsley Coman, N’Golo Kante. Karim Benzema is uncertain while? Lucas Hernández, with a hamstring injury, he had to leave the pitch last night in the Champions League against FC Barcelona. His club has already announced a 5-week absence for the defender. It is almost as much for Kimpembe that he will be out for 6 weeks. Always in defense Dayot Upamecano he was also hit in the knee. The field of possibilities for Didier Deschamps is therefore decreasing more and more two months after the World Cup.
FC Barcelona extends one of its nuggets
Last night FC Barcelona lost 2-0 to Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena. A bitter defeat for Xavi and his troops hoping for the best. Back in Catalonia, however, the Culés received good news on Wednesday morning. Indeed, Gavi extended his lease with Camp Nou residents. The young midfielder is now linked to Barça until 30 June 2026 with a 1 billion euro clause. This is called shielding a nugget.
