And three… This Tuesday, November 22, a third player on Didier Deschamps’ list was injured and had to forfeit the rest of the World Cup due to a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in his knee. right. If the blow is terrible for the France team, the coach of the Blues will have to find a solution for the other deadlines of the competition.
If Didier Deschamps could call a new player following Karim Benzema’s withdrawal, it is because the Real striker was injured before the start of this World Cup and had until 24 hours before the start of the first match to make this choice. From now on, the Blues must go as far as possible at 24, with a left side less. With the absences of Lucas Digne or Ferland Mendy, the left side risks being in difficulty with the one and only Théo Hernandez, or even Adrien Rabiot who could go down a notch.

- Environments : Eduardo Camavinga (real Madrid/ESP), Youssouf Fofana (Monaco), Mattéo Guendouzi (OM), Adrien Rabiot (Juventus Turin/ITA), Aurélien Tchouaméni (Real Madrid/ESP), Jordan Veretout (OM)
