Here is someone who does not have a club, who has not played a match for a month and who is called up for the national team. Patrice Beaumelle will have to tell us his selection criteria. Players are selected on the basis of their form and club performance. This is not the case of Aurier ”he hammered on the antennas of Channel La 3.

In the history of Ivorian football, African even worldwide, several athletes without a club have once been selected. This is not the first time that a player without a club has been chosen by the coach for an official match.
