France team – Wesley Fofana and William Saliba unavailable, Axel Disasi and Jean-Clair Todibo called up

Didier Deschamps has become accustomed to dealing with injuries. The year 2023 will start no differently for the France national coach. He will have to do without two defenders originally on his list, Wesley Fofana and William Saliba, ahead of the start of the Euro 2024 qualifying campaign, with games against the Netherlands on Friday, March 24, and then against Ireland on Monday, March 27. The FFF announced on Sunday the unavailability of the two players and their replacement by Axel Disasi and Jean-Clair Todibo.

William Saliba’s absence was predictable. The Arsenal defender was injured on Thursday during Arsenal’s elimination against Sporting in the Europa League. Hit on the back, the former Marseille should be absent for several weeks. Wesley Fofana suffered a hamstring injury to his right thigh during Chelsea’s 2-2 game against Everton on Saturday. A blow to the former Stéphanois, who was called up for the first time by Didier Deschamps for the French team during this rally.

The misfortune of some is the happiness of others. And in particular that of Jean-Clair Todibo. The Nice defender, author of a full season with the Aiglons, makes up for the absence of Fofana and thus experiences his first call-up to the tricolor group. A group that Disasi, called to replace Saliba, already knows. The Monegask had participated in three matches in the shirt of the Blues during the last World Cup.
