So what steve boss He returned to the Blues on Friday, Ousmane Dembélé did not train with a calf muscle problem. Doubt hangs over his participation in the League of Nations match against Denmark on Sunday (8:45 p.m.).
Not called for a year, steve boss (37 years old, 34 selections) made his return this Friday to the Blues to compensate for the mike maignan pack, shot in the left calf and left the rally after undergoing medical examinations. They revealed a muscle injury that should keep him off the pitch for about three weeks.
Released at half-time against Austria, the AC Milan goalkeeper was replaced in goal by Alphonse Areola. The latter holds the rope to endure on Sunday (8:45 p.m.) against Denmark. Jules Koundé, hit in the ischium of his left leg, also left the group, but was not replaced. The Barcelonan is also expected to be unavailable for around three weeks.
Expected change against Denmark
Injuries are piling up and Didier Deschamps will inevitably take that into account when choosing his eleven against the Danes. This Friday, the Blues, who will join Copenhagen this Saturday morning, trained at the Stade de France, a light session for the starters from the day before, a little earlier for the others, with one game in particular on the ground reduced.
All the others ? Not much less since Ousmane Dembélé, who only entered the Stade de France for ten minutes on Thursday, was content to pedal due to a calf muscle problem, the result of a blow received at the club. Simple precaution given his background? It’s possible. The Barcelonan is not officially out but there are doubts that he will be fully operational on Sunday.
All the news from the France team
Against Denmark “DD” should not change his system to 3-4-1-2 but we can expect some changes. Opposite Kylian Mbappé and Antoine Griezmann must continue while Christopher Nkunku applies. Behind, the squad is especially attentive to the recovery of Jonathan Clauss and Raphaël Varane, who could open doors for Benjamin Pavard or Dayot Upamecano. In the middle, the couple Aurélien Tchouaméni-Youssouf Fofana having run a lot and not having started against Austria, Deschamps could be tempted to change everything completely. An opportunity for Eduardo Camavinga and Mattéo Guendouzi?
