reassuring for Tchouaméni, the whole group


All the players of the French team should be available for the last training of the French team scheduled for Monday, before the last match of the international break against Finland, this Tuesday at Décines.

We will know Tuesday if the two days of break will have allowed the Blues of Didier Deschamps to evacuate the doubts that accompany them since the Euro. In the meantime, a classic training after the match, after the fifth consecutive draw for the Blues in official competition, took place this Sunday afternoon in Kiev. The holders of the day before against Ukraine (1-1) carried out a cleansing, including Aurélien Tchouaméni, released on injury at the end of the match (83rd).

Koundé under threat

Thomas Lemar, off topic against Bosnia (1-1), and Raphaël Varane, left on the bench as a precaution against Zbirna, performed a session with Cyril Moine, the physical trainer of the Blues. All players in Ukraine will normally be available in Lyon on Monday for the last training session before the France-Finland meeting organized in Décines on Tuesday. Expelled for a very nasty gesture last Wednesday, Jules Koundé served his suspension match. The central defender of Sevilla FC is, however, expected to receive news from the FIFA Disciplinary Committee, which may decide to extend his suspension.

With or without him, the France team has no room for error against Finland, 2nd in Group D, which could reshuffle the cards in the event of victory in Lyon. At home, Finland overcame Kazakhstan (1-0) on Saturday, securing their very first victory in this qualifying campaign, just before returning to the Blues. In November 2020, the Blues were trapped by this same qualification after having outrageously dominated the start of the meeting. Two goals in five minutes had left the Blues without reaction.
