Since then, if Mbappé has established himself as the locomotive of French football, Dembélé has, for his part, multiplied the injuries and periods of absence in the France team.

« I would like us to play a little more together, admitted the Barça winger this Wednesday in Rothen ignites on RMC. In the field, we get along very, very well. I know his qualities, he knows mine. We played what, 4-5 games him and I together? And it went very well. I remember against England or against Italy before the World Cup. Me, I want to do everything to work , to be in the eleven. »

Back at a very good level since the second half of last season, Dembélé has managed to string together meetings for several months. His performances in the Barça jersey have not gone unnoticed, since Didier Deschamps decided to call him during the last three gatherings of the Blues.

« Afterwards, we still have to keep working because the road is long to get to the top, he tempered at the microphone of Rothen ignites. There are a lot of good players and then, we, we will continue to work. I will continue to work to grow even more and go even higher. » Against Austria (this Thursday) then in Denmark (Sunday), in the League of Nations, he has a new opportunity to earn points in the mind of the coach.
