It’s D-Day. The coach of the France team, Didier Deschamps, will reveal this Wednesday the list of players selected for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar (November 20-December 18).
As four years ago for the World Cup in Russia, Didier Deschamps chose the television news of TF1, at 8 p.m., to communicate the names of the players to compete in the competition. The coach of the 2018 world champions has the option of retaining 23 or 26 players, since FIFA has authorized the qualified nations to call up three additional elements. If the absences of N’Golo Kanté and Paul Pogba are recorded, many uncertainties remain due to the physical concerns encountered by some.
In goal, a doubt surrounds the presence of Mike Maignan (AC Milan). In defense, “DD” will have to decide on the cases Presnel Kimpembe (Paris Saint-Germain) and Raphaël Varane (Manchester United). News of Karim Benzema is also expected, with the Real Madrid forward still bothered by his left thigh. In attack, Didier Deschamps will close the suspense on Olivier Giroud. Barring a dramatic change, the AC Milan striker will be on the trip.
Fallen in group D, the Blues will compete against Australia (Tuesday November 22), before two matches against Denmark (Saturday November 26) and Tunisia (Wednesday November 30).
