The Blues met on Monday at Clairefontaine for the start of a three-game rally. A sequence for which Didier Deschamps had summoned 26 players including Houssem Aouar. The Lyonnais midfielder had to forfeit following his thigh injury contracted Sunday against Saint-Etienne (2-1).
He was not replaced but in the evening, Didier Deschamps on the other hand called Ruben Aguilar for the first time while Benjamin Pavard still suffers from a muscle injury to a thigh. The right side of Monaco (27) will join the selection this Tuesday morning. Didier Deschamps, however, first wanted to call Ferland Mendy who had played on the right of the defense in October during the success of France in Croatia (2-1). But the Real Madrid defender had to decline due to muscle pain. The coach had also thought of Bouna Sarr according to information from the team that we can confirm. But the former Marseillais has not been released by his club. Bayern Munich have claimed a muscle problem in a thigh.
An intense session for Pogba and Giroud
This Monday, most of the French players were satisfied with care or recovery. Only eleven players went out to the Pibarot stadium for a simple jog under the eyes of a masked Didier Deschamps. Kylian Mbappé, who has just missed two games with PSG because of his right thigh, was content to trot alongside the physical trainer, Cyril Moine.
His participation in Wednesday’s match is not currently planned, like that of Presnel Kimpembe. Touched to a foot, the central defender remained indoors on Monday. Those who had not or little played this weekend were treated to a more intense session like Paul Pogba and Olivier Giroud who worked for a long time against the goal kept by Steve Mandanda.
Once is not customary, the Blues will not do their training the day before the match on the lawn of the Stade de France. The France team will make its final adjustments at 5.30pm at Clairefontaine. The match against Finland is scheduled for Wednesday at 9:10 p.m.
