A dramatic change for the Blues

Didier Deschamps seems ready to deviate from his principles a few weeks before the start of the World Cup.

Didier Deschamps and his team recorded two very good news on Wednesday. While he seemed to have to give up on the World Cup, Boubacar Kamara has resumed individual training and hopes to return to competition within a fortnight. Above all, the evolution is also going in the right direction concerning Lucas Hernandez, on the flank since the beginning of September and on the way to returning to collective training.

“He no longer feels any pain,” said Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann. Now he is on the right track. The goal is for him to play again by the World Cup. What allow the tricolor world champion to believe in his chances of being part of the adventure in Qatar. And all the more so since Didier Deschamps has assumed his position on the players currently injured. In September, the tricolor coach had indeed indicated that they would have to have recovered to hope to be on the trip. But since then, the tricolor infirmary has been well filled and like Lucas Hernandez, Raphaël Varane, injured this Saturday in the thigh, Mike Maignan, victim of a relapse in his calf, and Paul Pogba, hit in the knee this summer, are in a race against time.

The only one for whom the door is closed is N’Golo Kanté

Asked by AFP, the former midfielder changed his tune. “It’s on a case-by-case basis. For Paul Pogba, that he has playing time before the competition, as much as possible, I say yes, because he is in deficit compared to the others. For Raphaël Varane, it is less problematic on this aspect, because it is a muscle injury ”he explained, adding: “There are different stages. The first, which is essential, is that the player be cured. Afterwards, you have to assess the athletic condition, with the medical staff and the data you have. And thirdly, there is competition for the position. We cannot make generalizations. »

For now, only one package has been recorded. “The only one for whom the door is closed is N’Golo Kanté. For the others, we will have to see the evolution of their injuries.indicated the 98 world champion, demoting that for all the others, the door remained “open”.
