EdF: the Euro with Barcola and F. Mendy? -Soccer

This year (8 p.m.), the selection of the French team Didier Deschamps announced the list of young players for Euro 2024 in Germany (June 14 – July 14). According to various sources, the boss of the Blues should take advantage of the increase in the quota of players (26 instead of 23) and summon at least 25 elements, in particular to allow him to call those who are possibly too fair at the start of the gathering (Aurlien Tchouamni, Kingsley Coman, Mike Maignan) without it being practicable.

As usual, the former midfielder should not disrupt anything in the run-up to a big event. There could still be a return in the person of left-back Ferland Mendy, in order to compensate for the loss of Lucas Hernandez, and a new one, winger Bradley Barcola, attractive with Paris Saint-Germain for several weeks. Finally, Matto Guendouzi and Jordan Veretout could compete for the last place in midfield in the coach’s mind.

Deschamps will have to provide his final list on June 7 but will be able to make a final change until June 16, the day before the first match against Austria, in the event of injury or serious illness.
