The eleven of the players zapped by Deschamps




  • 1/13

    Didier Deschamps

    Will the French coach invite new players for the next rally?

  • 2/13

    Alban Lafont (FC Nantes)

    The Canaries goalkeeper, who is only 22 years old, has taken his time to become a reliable goalkeeper in Ligue 1. In recent months, he has outperformed Benoît Costil, who took the number 3 place in Mandanda during the previous gathering.

  • 3/13

    Jonathan Clauss (RC Lens)

    The untenable RC Lens player would undoubtedly make a quality right piston in the current 3-5-2 of “La Dèche”. In this role, he would bring much more to the game than Pavard and Dubois.

  • 4/13

    William Saliba (OM)

    Author of an excellent start to the season with OM, in the system of Jorge Sampaoli who nevertheless puts the defenders in difficulty. The current captain of the Bleuets shines with his speed and his reading of the game. A better Varane in a few years?

  • 5/13

    Ibrahima Konate (Liverpool)

    The rock recruited in Leipzig for 40 million is slowly establishing itself among the Reds. At 22, after several years in Hopes, he is waiting his turn with the A to compete with or accompany his former teammate Upamecano.

  • 6/13

    Melvin Bard (Nice)

    The good move of OGC Nice last summer. Little considered by OL, his training club, the left side has won in this team led by Christophe Galtier. He is currently the lining of Adrien Truffert at the Espoirs.

  • 7/13

    Boubacar Kamara (OM)

    He is the essential base of Jorge Sampaoli’s OM in position number 6. Very useful defensively, the youngster from Marseille is also distinguished by his long game. He has a tricolor future.

  • 8/13

    Téji Savanier (Montpellier)

    Probably the best player in Ligue 1 since the start of the season. The great leader of the MHSC goes from recital to recital. Only downside: he plays in a mid-table team. He would have more impact than a Rabiot.

  • 9/13

    Gaëtan Laborde (Rennes)

    His passage from MHSC to SRFC confirms it a little more: the former Bordeaux player is a high quality striker, as combative as he is inspired. More legs than Ben Yedder, for example.

  • 10/13

    Dimitri Payet (OM)

    When it is physically operational, OM number 10 flies over the Ligue 1 matches it plays. He is the attacking midfielder that creates the most chances in Europe. Even at his advanced age (34), why wouldn’t he make a super sub in selection?

  • 11/13

    Christopher Nkunku (Leipzig)

    A central attacking midfielder or left winger, as well as a runner-up, the player trained in PSG, shaped by the tactical genius Julian Nagelsmann, is able to do everything in the game. Precious and more decisive every weekend than some attacking midfielders of the EDF .

  • 12/13

    Amine Gouiri (Nice)

    A hell of a talent, with a fairly exceptional hitting technique. Second striker or left winger, the OL-trained player is off to a good start this season (6 goals, 4 assists) and seems set on for a superb career. It seems essential today.

  • 13/13

    Olivier Giroud (AC Milan)

    As a bonus: the center forward of the 2018 world champions who has been sidelined since the Euro, 4 months ago. Always so exemplary on the grounds in an excellent Milan. Humiliated by Deschamps by being beaten by Martial …

Some young Ligue 1 talents would probably deserve to be tried in Didier Deschamps’ dying French team. We take stock with an eleven guy.

After the coronation in the League of Nations in early October, thanks to stunning victories against Belgium (3-2) then Spain (2-1), theFrench team returns to the 2022 World Cup qualifiers next week. The matches against Kazakhstan (November 13 at the Parc des Princes) and Finland (16 in Helsinki) should allow the Blues to validate their qualification for the Qatari meeting.

Didier Deschamps unveils, this Thursday, his last group of the year (his last list before next March) and, after the pitiful collective performances delivered both during the “Final Four” and against Bosnia and Ukraine ( 6 shots on target on these two meetings), the French coach will perhaps allow himself to inject fresh blood. Especially since some players called in the last two months are not essential.

A few excellent Ligue 1 players, more or less young and more or less experienced at a very high level (they have not all played in the Champions League), deserve to be tested against opponents as weak as the Kazakhs and the Finns. . Without counting former executives of the French team of “La Dèche” like Dimitri Payet and obviously Olivier Giroud, dismissed for disciplinary reasons since the Euro.
