It’s not me you should ask the question, it’s my president. I am a coach, I take care of the field. After yes, there may be parasites, I trust you. But when there was this shooting, there was no tension between the players.

On the Mbappé soap opera

Kylian, he will announce his decision when he decides. It may be a soap opera for you, but for us… We don’t have a problem with that.

With Benzema and without Giroud it’s evening one or the other?

“Take back what I said since March… And I want to offer them the possibility of having more playing time. You will ask me again in November for the list for the World Cup and there you will have the answer.”

On Amnesty International’s open letter

“It’s a sensitive, very sensitive subject. It’s not the role of the players to put ropession on the FFF who made sure to be very attentive to what’s going on over there. I didn’t want to enter into a media debate but each individual, each person will have their freedom of expression. The players are free to express themselves on this subject.

Lafont close to the Blues?

“He is preselected, he is having a good end to the season. I am not going to say that he is further than he was two months ago, but I considered that Alphonse, from his experience, had an experience of the France team… Even if between the last rally and this one, he will have played 4 games.”

On Griezmann’s complicated period

“It happens. A player can have a period when he is less efficient. It can be linked to the situation of his club, his use… Yes, he is not in his best period, with more complicated matches on him in registers where he is perhaps less comfortable, but it happens to everyone, at one time or another. In addition, he suffered his first injury, he relapsed… It may have conditioned his physical condition. But I know what he’s done and what he’s capable of.”

On the absence of Giroud

“I leave you free to your hasty conclusions. I want on these 4 games there to offer the possibility to the other offensive players to have the possibility of hardening up and having more playing time.”

On the coming of Kamara

Kamara replaces Pogba who is not sufficiently recovered. On Kamara’s binatioinality, “at no time do I select a player to prevent him from having a second choice, but from the moment the player has a clear position, that of being a French international, he there’s no discussion to be had.”

Didier Deschamps is there

and here is the list of 24 players

Only a few minutes left before the reveal of the list

As a reminder, here is Deschamps’ latest roster from last March:

  • Goalkeepers: Alphonse Areola, Mike Maignan, Hugo Lloris.
  • Defenders: Lucas Digne, Jonathan Clauss, Lucas Hernandez, Théo Hernandez, Presnel Kimpembe, Jules Koundé, William Saliba, Raphael Varane.

  • Forwards: Wissam Ben Yedder, Olivier Giroud, Kingsley Coman, Moussa Diaby, Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappé, Christopher Nkunku.

Kamara, the surprise of the list?

OM midfielder Boubacar Kamara could be the big surprise on Didier Deschamps’ list.


No Giroud in the list

Olivier Giroud will not be called up for Les Bleus’ next four games.


Amnesty asks the Blues to commit to human rights in Qatar

Amnesty International publishes this Thursday an open letter to the attention of the French football team, in relation to human rights in Qatar, host country of the 2022 World Cup. “Your talent is worth gold, your word must Weigh just as much! Exhaustion, illness, unbearable heat: it is impossible to know the number of deaths – probably thousands – on the construction sites of the stadiums and infrastructures which will be used next winter for the great football festival”, writes Amnesty, who had challenged the French Football Federation (FFF) with a punch operation last Decemberbefore to get a meeting in April.

Hello and welcome to all for this live

This is the penultimate list before the World Cup and it is highly anticipated, a few months before leaving for Qatar. The internship starts on May 28, the day of the Champions League final, but Karim Benzema could arrive a few days later. He will also make his return to the list just like Benjamain Pavard. On the other hand, Paul Pogba, injured, is uncertain.

As RMC Sport announced to you in recent days, Terrier, Bourigeaud and Kolo Muani have received a preconvocation, which does not bode well for a rpésence in the list.
