Who will put the brakes on Herbert Kickl as chancellor? Great concern for the Blues!

Former press chief of the France team, Philippe Tournon is very reserved about the chances of the France team in Qatar.

The Blues face an immense challenge. Reigning world champions, Didier Deschamps’ men would be a real feat if they managed to retain their world crown. No nation has achieved the double since Pelé’s Brazil, crowned consecutively in 1958 and 1962. Worse, since 1998, only the same Brazil, this time in 2006, has managed to get out of the group stage when defending its title.

And the task of the France team will be all the greater as Didier Deschamps has to deal without Paul Pogba, N’Golo Kanté and Presnel Kimpembe and with diminished players like Karim Benzema and Raphael Varane. “We have great potential but we must see things lucidly, acknowledged Philippe Tournon, former press chief of the Blues, at the microphone of RMC. The central hinge of the 2018 Varane-Umtiti World Cup is no longer there. Varane is shaky, Kimpembe is forfeited and replaced by Axel Disasi who has never played in the France team. The midfielder of 2018 Pogba-Kanté-Matuidi, ciao!

The strike force in attack certainly encourages optimism. “In front, if everything goes well and if they are in shape, we have the atomic bomb. Mbappé-Benzema, we can take three goals per game and they can score four, “he stressed, nevertheless expressing a reservation about the fresh Ballon d’Or. The fault to the addition, Monday, of Marcus Thuram. “You don’t have to believe it either. Why did he not announce it in the first list? Everything that happens is quite classic but plunges us into a world of uncertainty,” he said.

Another asset in the game of the Blues, the science of Didier Deschamps. “Keeping the group together, that is to say planing a little egos that exceed and promoting a little those who are a little behind and ensuring that players who do not play or are injured do not drop out. But this is where there is the least concern because Didier is a modern manager like I have not seen others. Managing your group, finding the right words at the right times, I don’t worry but there is a lot of uncertainty.”
