France will know. An essential step before the big international meeting, the announcement of the list of selected players will take place this Tuesday evening. Didier Deschamps invites himself on television at 8:20 p.m. to announce his choices for the Euro (June 11-July 11). We know a priori the main lines, but the possibility of selecting 26 players this year reshuffles some cards.
This could, for example, benefit players who have just returned from injury, such as Corentin Tolisso in midfield and Anthony Martial in attack, and some young people to discover the very high level with the A, such as Wesley Fofana, Jules Koundé or Aurélien Chouaméni.
The surprise that no one was waiting for?
There remains the great unknown Benzema. The Real Madrid striker has not set foot in the Blues since 2015 and his fate seems sealed for a long time. But his huge season (22 goals in La Liga, 6 in the Champions League), probably the most complete of his career at 33, could have changed DD’s thinking. This is what advances The teamthis morning.
Will we be entitled to the surprise that nobody expected? Place your bets – and try to compose your list of 26 with the names that follow.
