Great honor for Randal Kolo Muani: The Eintracht Frankfurt star is going to the 2022 World Cup. He is benefiting from the injury of a Bundesliga colleague.

Four days before the start of the World Cup, the French national team had to digest the next injury shock: After Les Bleus had to do without players like Paul Pogba, N’Golo Kanté, Presnel Kimpembe and Mike Maignan, Christopher Nkunku could not take part in the tournament in Qatar either. The Leipziger injured his knee more severely in training.

Randal Kolo Muani is now benefiting from the absence of the offensive player RMC Sport and Sport1 is nominated for Nkunku. The Frankfurt native made his international debut for Didier Deschamps’ team just two months ago and is now facing the biggest highlight of his career so far.

If you look at the numbers that the 23-year-old has so far in SGE dress, Kolo Muani’s appointment is more than understandable: In 23 appearances this season, the attacker has scored eight goals and eleven assists.

Given the immense competition on the French offensive, it remains to be seen how often Kolo Muani will actually be used in Qatar. Karim Benzema, Kylian Mbappé, Antoine Griezmann, Olivier Giroud, Ousmane Dembélé, Kingsley Coman and Marcus Thuram are also lurking for game time.
