France team: what list of 23 for the Blues at the 2022 World Cup?

The France team has his ticket in his pocket for the 2022 World Cup. And if Didier Deschamps still has a year to shape his group before the start of the competition, the French coach already has a large part of his list in mind, although a few places are still available.

Didier Deschamps should announce his list of selected players at the end of October or early November 2022, three or four weeks before the start of the competition in Qatar, where the Blues will defend their title won four earlier in Russia. The boss of the Tricolores and his staff therefore have time in front of them to constitute this always eagerly awaited list. But, barring injuries or other unforeseen events, they should largely rely on the current hard core, which has about fifteen players.

Captain of this French team, Hugo Lloris is guaranteed to play the fourth world of his career. Mike Maignan, who underwent wrist surgery in October, is expected to be his understudy, while the 3e goalkeeper position will be played between Benoît Costil and Alphonse Areola.

In defense, Raphaël Varane, Presnel Kimpembe, Lucas Hernandez, Benjamin Pavard are almost certain to be part of the adventure. Théo Hernandez and Jules Koundé have also convinced and are on track to accompany them. For their part, Léo Dubois, Lucas Digne, Clément Lenglet, Kurtz Zouma and Dayot Upamecano risk competing for the last places. Even if a surprise is not to be excluded (Nordi Mukiele, William, Saliba …)

In midfield, Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kanté are untouchable and will be there. Less efficient with Juventus Turin, Adrien Rabiot retains the confidence of Didier Deschamps. Aurélien Tchouaméni made his hole, but if nothing is guaranteed yet concerning the Monegasque. He is nevertheless a step ahead of Mattéo Guendouzi and Jordan Veretout, who could be in competition with Corentin Tolisso as well as Eduardo Camavinga, to name a few, to integrate this list.

Finally, Antoine Griezmann, Kylian Mbappé and Karim Benzema will lead the tricolor attack in Qatar. If his physique allows him, Kingsley Coman will also be among the 23 lucky winners. For Wissam Ben Yedder, Moussa Diaby, Thomas Lemar, Anthony Martial, everything remains to be done, while a player like Christophe Nkunku knocks very hard on the door. He and others have a year to try to open it.
