World Cup: what rights for the Blues if Sidibé forfeit?


Hit against PSG (7-1), Djibril Sidibé suffers from a lesion of the right knee . He left the field on a stretcher and under the applause of the Parc des Princes Sunday. If the complete diagnosis of his injury is not yet known, a package for the World Cup would be a huge blow for the team of France. The tank at this post is very thin. And the few solutions. An inventory is required.

Debuchy reverends

Mathieu Debuchy (32) has not played with the Blues since September 2015. An eternity. The current form of the Saint-Etienne player , exceptional since his arrival in the Forez last winter, opens wide the doors of a return to France team. Probably in balance at the moment with Benjamin Pavard, for the role of dubbed Djibril Sidibé, his chances would increase in the absence of the Monegasque. In ten Ligue 1 games with the Greens, Mathieu Debuchy has scored four times. Above all, he found some going, a solid physique and the quality of center we knew him. Essential.

Pavard, the German sensation

Party rubbing off at another European championship, one of the biggest (the Bundesliga), in 2016, Benjamin Pavard (22 years old) has experienced an astonishing trajectory. A fate he did not imagine. Excellent with Stuttgart this season, the versatile French defender stirs up the greed . He has worn the jersey of the French team three times since November 2017. Dubbed Djibril Sidibé in the spirit of Didier Deschamps to date, it could take a gallon in the absence of his compatriot. Especially since behind him, the competition does not jostle at the gate when it is not diminished physically.

Jallet, Corchia, the last resort

Both are on the floor and Didier Deschamps will only appeal to them in case of extreme urgency. Christophe Jallet (34 years old, 16 caps) has been sidelined since February for a left knee injury. Sébastien Corchia, for his part, did not convince Didier Deschamps to the training sessions during his last convocation. The coach has also preferred Benjamin Pavard in November 2017 despite an interesting performance with Sevilla FC. His presence in the list seems unlikely.
