Kanté and Lucas Hernandez leave the rally

Kante is “bothered by knee pain“, while Hernandez, also embarrassed by muscle pain on Friday, will join his companion”waiting for a happy event“. Kanté had already missed the last two matches of the Blues, his absence on the lawn being added to that of Paul Pogba, which allowed substitutes to express themselves, in Croatia (1-1) and in Austria, notably the Monegasque Aurélien Tchouaméni and two Marseillais, Boubacar Kamara and Matteo Guendouzi.

In defense, the absence of Lucas Hernandez in Vienna on Friday, added to Raphaël Varane’s package and Didier Deschamps’ desire to spare Presnel Kimpembe, captain on Monday against Croatia, allowed Ibrahima Konaté to live his first selection in Blue, with at his side William Saliba, tenured a second time in a row.
