France team – League of Nations: Didier Deschamps calls on Boubacar Kamara, Olivier Giroud remains at the dock

Didier Deschamps stumbled on his surname. But that should not have upset the main interested party who had understood the essentials when the coach started to pronounce his name: Boubacar Kamara will discover the France team in June on the occasion of the start of the League of Nations 2022 /2023. The Marseille midfielder is the only novelty on this second list of the year, a list that DD has expanded to 24 men due to the traffic jam that arises.

From June 3 to 13, the Tricolores must play four games against Denmark (June 3 at the Stade de France), Croatia (June 6), Austria (June 10) and once again against the Croats (June 13), at Stade de France.

Courted by Senegal, the Marseillais will discover the A after having worn the colors of the French national teams from the U17s to the Espoirs (9 caps). Preferred to Eduardo Camavinga, natural applicant, Boubacar Kamara digitally replaces Paul Pogba. Injured in a calf since April, the Manchester United midfielder was not yet in a condition to come to Clairefontaine.

Benzema or Giroud

Olivier Giroud, he was able to land at the castle. But after having recalled him in March, when Karim Benzema was injured, the coach of the France team did not include him in his list for June. DD had doubts about his ability to accept a minor role after being an indisputable starter for almost five years. It appears that these were not lifted at the last gathering. The former Montpellier striker will have a hard time seeing Qatar this fall.

For the rest, Didier Deschamps was faithful to his March choices, since William Saliba and Jonathan Clauss, satisfactory when the Blues returned, are there again. Called but forced to give up due to the Covid, Benjamin Pavard is one of the nine defenders selected.

The attack is made up of the seven players DD had called up in March, before Benzema’s injury and Giroud’s recall. There too, he followed his line of conduct. To the chagrin of the second top scorer in the history of the Blues.
