The international break which will begin after OL / PSG will deprive Christophe Galtier of most of his elements since they are very numerous to have been summoned. Overview.
The Parisian workforce has changed a lot during the summer but it has not been depopulated in internationals, however, according to the number of summoned for the international break in September which will start after OL / PSG this Sunday. If Christophe Galtier has never known a club the size of PSG, he has probably never known either the training sessions to manage with a few players at most but that is what awaits him.
On the side of the guards, Donnarumma should logically join Italy and Navas Costa Rica given their respective status. In defense, Marquinhos was of course summoned by Brazil and danilo Pereira was with Portugal. Among the sides, the story is the same since the two holders of PSG, the Portuguese Nuno Mendes on the left and the Moroccan Achraf Hakimi on the right, will also find their national team. While Presnel Kimpembe is still in the infirmary for a good month, Sergio Ramos has been pre-summoned and the only two defenders who should remain in Paris are named Nordi Mukiele and John Bernat.
In the middle of the field, there is also an injured person who will stay in Paris, Renato sanchesbut depopulation is on the agenda since Vitinha has been summoned with Portugal and that Verratti will be with Italy. There remains the case of the two Spaniards in the midfield: Carlos Soler is now a regular at La Roja but hasn’t played much lately while Fabian Ruiz has not been summoned for more than a year and therefore has little chance of being called.
In attack, there should also be only one left, namely Hugo Ekitike who was not called up to the Espoirs or the U20s given his short playing time. Of course, the MNM is called: Mbappe with France, Neymar with Brazil (but passing through France) and Lionel Messi with Argentina who will play in the United States. Doubt surrounds the presence of Sarabia with Spain, the left-hander having played little lately after winning his place in the selection last year.
Young people also in selection
Like his predecessor, Galtier will therefore find himself with a group made up of 6 to 10 confirmed players and he will not really be able to rely on young people either since the regulars will not be there either: El Chadaille Bitshiabu and Warren Zaire-Emery are summoned with the France U19 team, as well as the central defender and captain of the U19 Younes El-Hannach. He won’t be able to count on Ishmael either. Gharbi, summoned with the Spain U19 team. On the other hand, he should be able to rely on Ayman Kariback from injury and not called up with the Bleuets.
As a reminder, PSG will return to Ligue 1 after this international break at the end of September on Saturday October 1 on the occasion of the reception of OGC Nice.
