Finally! This Saturday evening, at the Jassim Bin Hamad stadium, the stadium where the French team has been working since its arrival on November 16 in Doha, a great first occurred. Karim Benzema and Raphaël Varane, two executives from Didier Deschamps’ A, have finally trained with the rest of the group. Since their installation in the Emirate, they had to prepare separately, under the guidance of Cyril Moine, one of the coach’s assistants. But this Saturday evening, the former partners of Real Madrid, victims of muscular problems or discomfort, took part in training.
It remains to know their feelings at the end of the opposition which must conclude the menu of the day. Three days from France – Australia, their presence in the starting lineup is gaining momentum and would significantly change the decor of the Blues, already deprived for the entire competition of four men forfeited, Paul Pogba, N’Golo Kanté, Presnel Kimpembe and Christopher Nkunku.
