The French national team released its roster for the upcoming international break and as expected, there is a strong Bayern Munich presence on the squad.
While Lucas Hernandez and Benjamin Pavard will miss the call-up due to working their way back form injuries, Didier Deschamps did call up winger Kingsley Coman, midfielder Corentin Tolisso, and center-back Dayot Upamecano:
4️⃣ nouveaux joueurs dans la liste de Didier Deschamps pour le rassemblement qui débute lundi ! @TheoHernandez, @atchouameni, @JordanVeretout et @MoussaDiaby_19 #FiersdetreBleus pic.twitter.com/kcIpkhy26d— Equipe de France ⭐⭐ (@equipedefrance) August 26, 2021
4 new players in Didier Deschamps’ list for the rally which begins on Monday! @TheoHernandez, @atchouameni, @JordanVeretout, and @MoussaDiaby_19 #FiersdetreBleus
Coman, of course, is working his way back from a minor knock, but should be fine to compete for France. Theo Hernandez, bother of Lucas, received all call-up to help bolster the defensive unit.
So far, we have two players, who have received their phone calls, emails, or texts:
- Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting (his email went to the correct address!)
- Josip Stanisic
- Kingsley Coman
- Corentin Tolisso
- Dayot Upamecano
Germany will announce its national team shortly, which should see quite a few Baye4rn Munich players get the nod. BFW will track the international call-ups as they occur so stay tuned for the latest and greatest news regarding the international break.
