World Cup 2022: only Alphonse Areola missing from Blues training

Not at twenty-four, but at twenty-three, the French players began training openly to the media this Monday in Doha, in a calm and tense atmosphere. The fresh air that has been invited in recent days to the capital of the emirate is present to rock the session, which takes place without Alphonse Areola.

No major concerns

Spared and well-mannered, like Eduardo Camavinga or Kingsley Coman a few days earlier, the third goalkeeper in the pecking order suffers from lower back pain, which does not inspire much concern for the tricolor staff. Didier Deschamps will have to choose between Steve Mandanda and Hugo Lloris to start the third group match against Tunisia this Wednesday (16:00, TF 1 and beIN Sports).

The Tottenham goalkeeper is just one step away from equaling Lilian Thuram’s all-time record for most caps (142), but the manager may well decide to launch Mandanda, as he did in a similar context four years in Russia against Denmark . Otherwise, all available field players take part in training as usual.
