Before the announcement of the list, disclosed this Thursday by Didier Deschamps, the main question lies in the presence of Kylian Mbappé. Absent from the trip to Leipzig on Wednesday in the Champions League, the Parisian is affected with hamstrings of the right thigh.
However, he should be called to prepare the meetings against Finland (friendly), Portugal and Sweden (in the League of Nations). In view of the order and the importance of the meetings, Didier Deschamps, who always shows great discernment in the management of his players, has the possibility of not aligning him on November 11 against the Finns. The coach had acted in this way with Kingsley Coman during the last rally by exempting him from the first match against Ukraine (7-1) to finish treating a thigh injury.
The Basque technician will need the best director in Ligue 1 (7 goals and 4 assists) more for the top of Group 3 in Lisbon, three days later, presumably decisive for the attribution of the first place. The Bondy prodigy will not meet, however, Edouardo Camavinga. The Rennes nugget, victim of a muscle glitch, will pass its turn.
For the rest, we can expect the great classic with however a somewhat larger group compared to its predecessor. This was the case in October (24 players selected). It will be even more so, this time around, with the problem of the second away game and the Covid tests imposed by UEFA on Thursday, November 12 in the morning. As a result, the staff will not be able to recall players after Finland. Ousmane Dembélé, who looks up after a long tunnel, will have to wait before hoping to find the Blues just like Jonathan Ikoné at the disposal of the Hopes, Alassane Plea, author of a hat-trick, Tuesday evening, with Mönchengladbach against Donetsk, Moussa Sissoko , Tanguy Ndombele or even Kurt Zouma can believe it. The summons of a newcomer cannot be ruled out either.
