Badiashile and Fofana did not expect to be called up

What’s next after this ad

To face Austria and Denmark, Didier Deschamps called on several novices for this gathering of the France team. Among them are the two AS Monaco players, Benoît Badiashile and Youssouf Fofana. Present at a press conference this Monday in Clairefontaine, the two Asemists indicated that they did not expect at all to be called by the coach.

“I was still quite surprised to be selected. I did not expect it accordingly. Compared to the World Cup, when you are selected for the last list before the World Cup, you can hope to participate in it, ”said Badiashile, followed by Fofana a few moments later. ” No way. Afterwards, given what happened (cascade of injuries), it hung in my face. So I had to be careful, I had to prepare anyway. (…) The pressure for the World Cup is not there yet. I’m taking full advantage, I’m coming to do my job, we’ll see later. (…) We must already estimate the chance that I would have to start on Thursday or Sunday. Qatar is far in my head. »
