In an effort to defend their championship in Qatar, the defending World Cup winners, France, have named their 25-man roster for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.
Karim Benzema, the Ballon d’Or winner, Kylian Mbappe, Antoine Griezmann, Olivier Giroud, and Ousmane Dembele are just a few of the attacking options Les Bleus have chosen for the major competition.
Paul Pogba and Ngolo Kante, two key midfielders for France who won’t play for the national side in the competition, have sustained injuries. Due to their absence, their midfield does feel a little light. In the centre of the park, players like Adrien Rabiot, Eduardo Camavinga, and Aurelien Tchouameni are the most noteworthy.
Raphael Varane of Manchester United, William Saliba of Arsenal, Ibrahima Konate of Liverpool, and Jules Kounde of Barcelona will combine to make a formidable defence for the two-time champions.
At the Al Wakrah Sports Complex, the reigning champions will open their campaign against Australia on November 23.
Here is the France Squad for 2022 FIFA World Cup:
|Hugo Lloris (GK)||Steve Mandanda (GK)||Alphonse Areola (GK)||Lucas Hernandez (Def)|
|Theo Hernandez (Def)||Presnel Kimpembe (Def)||Ibrahima Konate (Def)||Jules Kounde (Def)|
