Headcount for France – United States
France has a golden generation and logically serves as credible candidate for the title in this 2018 World Cup. Many elements evolve in the best European clubs. We can mention the presence of goalkeeper and captain Lloris (Tottenham), defenders Mendy (Manchester City), Umtiti (Barcelona) and Varane (Real Madrid), midfielders Kanté (Chelsea), Pogba (Manchester United), Matuidi (Juventus), Tolisso (Bayern Munich) and forwards Griezmann (Atletico Madrid), Giroud (Chelsea), Mbappé (PSG) and Dembélé (Barcelona). Didier Deschamps made some strong choices by dismissing Coman (Bayern Munich), Rabiot (PSG), Lacazette (Arsenal), Martial (Man Utd) or Digne (Barcelona), and taking into account the injuries of Koscielny (Arsenal) and Payet ( OM). Note the surprise selection of N’Zonzi in the middle, the presence of Lucas Hernandez (Atletico Madrid) and Rami (OM) behind, and the offensive choices Fekir (OL) and Thauvin (OM). An uncertain time, the Sidibé side (Monaco) is well in the group, as his teammate Lemar in the middle, yet in the tough second half of the season.
In addition to all his players involved in the national championship, the United States will have to compose without a few executives like the defender Yedlin (Newcastle), the medium Nagbe (Atlanta), the nugget Pulisic (Dortmund) and the striker Wood (Hamburg). Largely weakened for this new gathering therefore, the group is led by the middle Corona (America) or the defender Lichaj (Nottingham Forest). Note the presence of the young PSG striker, Timothy Weah, scorer against Bolivia.
