EdF: the tile confirmed for Antoine Griezmann, a returner to replace him


By: Manu Tournoux

Two great meetings before a big deadline. In the coming days, the French team will face Germany then Chile to assess themselves just a stone's throw from Euro 2024 on the other side of the Rhine. Interesting meetings which will allow us to fine-tune the final settings for Didier Deschamps and his group. Cornerstone of the coach's system since the 2014 World Cup, Antoine Griezmann was logically called up for both matches.

However, his presence to challenge Germany this Saturday and Chile this Tuesday remained very uncertain. The Team announced earlier this Monday that the presence of Antoine Griezmann within the France group may not last very long for this March group, since his ankle pain remains significant. A bit later, RMC Sport affirms that the number 7 of the Blues is already forfeited for this gathering. In addition to his series of 84 consecutive appearances in the rooster jersey which will thus come to an end, his absence will allow Matteo Guendouzi to join Clairefontaine in the coming hours according to our colleagues. Interesting with Lazio Rome, the former OM would be the lucky one to replace Griezmann even though he had not been called up since the World Cup in Qatar.
