After four months away from each other, the Blues will finally meet again for the first time in 2024. During this gathering in March, the France team will have their work cut out for them with two friendly meetings which will take place. will take place in the provinces. The first will take place on March 23 at 9 p.m. in Décines, at the Groupama Stadium. Didier Deschamps’ men will face Germany there. An excellent test a few months before Euro 2024, which will take place on the other side of the Rhine. Three days later, the KM7 teammates will play against Chile (March 26 at 9 p.m.) at the Orange Vélodrome in Marseille.

A stadium much appreciated by the Tricolores who have often praised the atmosphere in the stands. For these two meetings, DD decided to call 23 players. He unveiled his famous list this Thursday at 2 p.m. at the headquarters of the French Football Federation. A highly anticipated list since several players were already on the sidelines even before the announcement of the French coach, like Boubacar Kamara, Presnel Kimpembe and Kingsley Coman, who have been injured for a long time. Same thing for Nabil Fekir, Wesley Fofana and Christopher Nkunku.

DD decided

Suspended for 4 years, Paul Pogba cannot be selected. Despite this terrible massacre, Deschamps has put together a list that looks great. Unsurprisingly, executives Kylian Mbappé, Antoine Griezmann and Olivier Giroud, whom Thierry Henry wants to recover for the Olympics, are there. Same thing for Jonathan Clauss, who had some problems at Olympique de Marseille, or Randal Kolo Muani, who is having a little trouble at Paris Saint-Germain.

Absent during the last rally, Benjamin Pavard (Inter) makes his return while Jean-Clair Todibo (Nice) is missing. Affected with Juventus, Adrien Rabiot is very present in the midfield, while he was uncertain. In attack, Bradley Barcola (PSG) was insistently cited to compensate for the absence of Coman. But DD decided to call up another player and it is the returning Moussa Diaby (Aston Villa), who returns to the France group. The Blues coach has decided!

Guardians: Alphonse Areola (West Ham), Mike Maignan (AC Milan), Brice Samba (RC Lens)
