Last in its group in the League of Nations, the France team must end this group stage in the best possible way, in particular to avoid relegation to League B. But this international parenthesis will also be an opportunity for Didier Deschamps to carry out the final tests for the World Cup.
The coach will not have much choice anyway since he has to deal with an impressive list of injured (Karim Benzema, Paul Pogba, N’Golo Kanté, Kingsley Coman, Presnel Kimpembe, Lucas Hernandez, Hugo Lloris, Adrien Rabiot, Boubacar Kamara, Lucas Digne and Théo Hernandez). Unsurprisingly, we therefore deserve to see a new-look France team tomorrow evening, on the occasion of the reception of Austria.
Ousmane Dembele plebiscite
While waiting to know the eleven concocted by DD, we asked you to choose yours. The votes were numerous and a trend quickly emerged. Make way for a 3-4-3 and here is your team. Mike Maignan was acclaimed in goal. In front of him, the innkeeper Raphaël Varane pleases you, just like the rising values that are William Saliba and Jules Koundé. A notch above, benjamin Pavard and the ghost Ferland Mendy play the pistons.
In the midfield, you blindly trusted the Real Madrid duo Aurélien Tchouaméni and Eduardo Camavinga. Note however that the Marseillais Mattéo Guendouzi was not far from taking the place of the former Rennais. Finally, the attack is made up of another ghost: Ousmane Dembélé. The Blaugrana is accompanied by Antoine Griezmann and the inevitable Kylian Mbappé. You voted en masse for this trio, but Olivier Giroud was not far behind. Will Didier Deschamps think like you?
