Didier Deschamps announces list of 25 players to move to Qatar
Kante and Pogba, the most notable absence from ‘Les Bleus’
Without too many surprises. Didier Deschamps has announced a list of 25 players who will go to the 2022 Qatar World Cup, in a call full of stars and where the absence of two untouchables in midfield stands out for the French coach: N’Golo Kante and Paul Pogba. Fofana and Guendouzi are his options. Neither is Madrid’s Mendy nor former Barca player Lenglet.
The rest, normal. Griezmann, Benzema and Mbappe will triple the attack, while Wren has recovered in time and aims to become the leader of the ‘Blues’ defense. Azulgrana Kaunde is also said to be very important. Ousmane Dembélé does not miss the appointment.
