France national team: Axel Disasi, first in Blue?  trending list

On the eve of the announcement of the squad for the two Nations League games against Austria (September 22) and Denmark (September 25), Didier Deschamps has enough to give him headaches.

There are absentees on all lines. In defence, Presnel Kimpembe, Ibrahima Konaté and Lucas Hernández (affected on Tuesday after scoring against Barça) are out. Benjamin Pavard’s state is quite reassuring. In this context, the coach will rely on the elements already present in the last match.

The presence of the world champion, Raphaël Varane, is expected on the axis. Jules Koundé and William Saliba should also be part of the group. The benefits of the former Marseille did not escape the template.

Disasi appreciated by Deschamps

If the car maintains the same structure, at least it could be called another axial. Among the most credible candidates is Axel Disasi. The one who usually wears the captain’s armband with AS Monaco is appreciated by Didier Deschamps who is thinking of calling him up for the first time. His recent performances against PSG and Lyon speak in his favour. His mastery of the three-way system is an advantage. “He has become more reliable, erasing certain mistakes that he could make due to lack of attention,” breathes a close member of the staff. A first call this Thursday would reward his rise to power for several months.

Wesley Fofana shortlisted

Another young man on the rise: Wesley Fofana. He was also shortlisted for this meeting. Many observers see him as one of the most promising players of his generation. His shin injury caused him to lose some time for the national team. However, after signing for Chelsea (82 million euros), he will play more and more high-level games. Enough for them to call you tomorrow?

Finally, Clément Lenglet or Dayot Upamecano (which is better) could return. They have the advantage that they already have experience, experience with the Blues. On the left are Théo Hernandez and Lucas Digne. On the right, there is a reflection between Nordi Mukiele and Jonathan Clauss. At the moment, OM’s piston has a small head start.

In the middle, Tchouameni will become an essential element, especially after his excellent start to the season with his new club, Real Madrid. Will he be accompanied by his companion Camavinga? It is a possibility, unless the Monegasque Youssouf Fofana takes advantage of the absences to find a place. He has been watched recently, notably against PSG, and his performance has won over the Blues squad. Especially since Rabiot, a victim of muscle pain, did not play in Serie A last weekend and is not in Juventus’ group for the LDC game against Benfica. Guendouzi and Kamara, present last June, have a good chance of appearing on this list again.

As for the offensive sector, Griezmann will come to recharge his batteries with the Blues, he who does not enjoy great playing time at Atlético due to a 40 million euro dispute between the club and Barcelona, ​​​​which forces him to enter only in the hour of game in each game since the beginning of the season. Mbappé the essential should be accompanied by Diaby and Nkunku.

There remains the uncertainty of Benzema, who suffers an injury to his right thigh. The blue squad would like to have him but his coach at Real, Carlo Ancelotti, was clear: “If he can play the derby against Atlético on Sunday, he can go to the France team!”

A return of Dembélé?

A comeback is in sight with the Coman package: Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele. As for Wissam Ben Yedder, in trouble with his club since the start of the season, he could pay the price. Which could lead to another comeback, that of Marcus Thuram, playing for M’Gladbach: 7 TCC games and 6 goals since the start of the season. The only drawback is that he is not playing in the European Cup this season. Finally, the eternal question: what about Giroud? Only Deschamps has the answer.

The staff is also considering the composition of the roster. A priori 23 players will be summoned. In any case, nothing is recorded and the games this Wednesday afternoon could still change the situation. Didier Deschamps and his assistants will watch the Champions League matches together before considering the final version of the list.
