2:37 p.m.: End of construction. We will not have learned much, but we are used to it. A list and matches: the Blues will have an appointment with the Netherlands and Ireland to launch their year and turn the page on the World Cup in Qatar. It will be with the Thuram brothers, Wesley Fofana and Brice Samba. Thank you for having lived this great moment by my side, stay connected on sofoot.com, we will continue to talk about this list. Take care of yourself, kisses.
2:36 p.m.: “You spare me nothing »smiles Didier to a question on the case of Corinne Deacon. “On the form, it bothers me, but I don’t have to say more, you understood me. »
2:33 p.m.: Zero panic for DD after the resignation of Noël Le Graët. “I take note and I adapt, it is not something that weighs on me, we think of the good of the France team. »
2:29 p.m.: Didier Deschamps is spoiled for choice in the central defense sector. He decided to summon Wesley Fofana. Pressure because of his dual nationality? “Now is the time, he is with us. » For Jean-Clair Todibo, we will still have to wait. Move along, nothing to see.
2:27 p.m.: Olivier Giroud, we are not talking about retirement. Faithful to the post, to the delight of his brother.
2:26 p.m.: After the Hernandez siblings, make way for the Thuram siblings. The France team is above all a big family.
2:24 p.m.: The Pavard case: “It belongs to the past, I know, he knows too. His versatility is important, he performs well with his club, and he knows that he is first and foremost there to play as a right-back. »
2:20 p.m.: It is true that there is a Euro among the Hopes next June. The coach talks about his exchanges with Sylvain Ripoll and his desire to allow him to have a competitive group. “The priority remains the France A team”, he adds. Logic.
2:17 p.m.: OH Mathieu Rollinger was able to ask his question, magnificent. The place of the World Cup in the speech to come? “When you miss out on the supreme title, it doesn’t happen like that. We must feed on this experience for those who were there. I also allow myself to thank all the people I met who were grateful and who lived fabulous moments. We can’t change anything in history, it’s obviously useful, but it’s not by saying that it’s because we were in the final of the World Cup that we are automatically qualified for the Euro. » He does not lose the North, the DD.
2:14 p.m.: We move on to the subject of the Stade de France which could be sold, Deschamps is served: “I know that I am granted decision-making powers where I do not even put my little fingers. What do you want me to tell you? There is the question of profitability, contracts, I don’t deal with all that. Today, it is the stadium of the France team. Whether this will always be the case, I do not have the answer. »
2:12 p.m.: New question about Benzema, Didier will feel unwell. “Another can try again just in case, I won’t answer on that anymore.” »
2:10 p.m.: No Lafont, but Samba, for his first with the Blues. “He is doing everything to be there, he is having a great season. » For the hierarchy, again, the coach first wants to talk about it with the interested parties.
2:09 p.m.: The Benzema point, DD will not put a part back in the machine: “ I don’t watch social networks, I had to express myself lately, for me the subject is closed. The important thing for me is the future and what lies ahead of us. »
2:07 p.m.: As expected, we won’t know who the new captain will be, the skipper wants to talk about it with his group first before making his decision.
2:04 p.m.: Regarding Camavinga’s position, DD confirms that he will be there as a left-back for this rally and praises his versatility. It seems that he even discussed it with the person concerned. Heart on you Eduardo.
2:02 p.m .: Find the full list above. The Thuram are reunited, Samba is in the game, and Camavinga is one of the defenders. No big surprise, in the end.
14h01: We start with a tribute to Claude Simonet, former president of the FFF, who died yesterday.
14h00: THIS IS DIDIER. FIRE.
1:59 p.m.: One thing is certain: it will be without Houssem Aouar.
1:57 p.m.: An equally burning question: who to be the new captain of the Blues? Not sure that the boss will give his answer this Thursday, but it should be played out between Kyks and Grizou. And you, what’s your little nickname?
1:54 p.m.: This list is also an opportunity for Deschamps to go on the grill in a very delicate context, between the resignation of Noël Le Graët and the departure of Corinne Deacon. DD, he remains standing and extended his four-year contract at the start of the year. No question of leaving his chair.
1:51 p.m.: We have heard many names circulating in recent days: Kephren Thuram, Manu Koné, Jean-Clair Todibo, Valentin Rongier, Brice Samba, Wesley Fofana… Place your bets.
1:49 p.m.: It will be a new list without Paul Pogba and Ngolo Kanté, a priori. Has everyone mourned this dream duo among the Blues?
1:47 p.m.: Ask for the program. To get their heads back in the somewhat boring routine of international breaks, France have an appointment with the Netherlands on Friday March 24, before going to Dublin on Monday 27 to rub shoulders with Ireland, as part of the qualifications for the next Euro.
1:45 p.m.: Hello olibrius! How’s it going ? Are you at work? Are you on strike? Are you still on lunch break? Don’t worry, Didier Deschamps is coming to entertain us with the first list of the Blues of the year, also the first since the World Cup. It will be without retirees Lloris, Mandanda and Varane, which could allow us to discover one or two new faces. Nice.
