Bayern Munich midfielder Corentin Tolisso was extremely nervous about his chances of even getting a call-up to the French national team.

After proving he is healthy after a torn muscle, however, the 26-year-old has firmly positioned himself as a contender to start in France’s midfielder during the European Championships.

Per an analysis from France Football, Tolisso is one of the players who benefitted from training camp and the squad’s friendlies. After France’s 3-0’win over Bulgaria, the French publication assessed Tolisso this way:

45 minutes: That’s how much time Corentin Tolisso has played with Bayern Munich since his return from a nasty injury (torn tendon in the left thigh). Starring alongside Paul Pogba and Adrien Rabiot against Wales, then in a three-man midfield with N’Golo Kanté and the Manchester United man against the Bulgarians, the Bayern Munich midfielder has been simply amazing for someone returning from injury. Valuable in the recovery, always in the right tempo to cover and compensate for the rise of his teammates, the former Lyon has undoubtedly earned his place as a starter for the Euro at the expense of Adrien Rabiot. His versatility in midfield makes him a valuable piece of the French midfield balance and allows Pogba and Kanté to play with a little more freedom. The big winner of the preparation of the Blues, without a doubt.

That is incredible news for Tolisso, who might be positioning himself for a move away from Bayern Munich later this summer. With his contract expiring in 2022, Bayern Munich and Tolisso must decide where the player will extend his deal of move on very shortly.
