It is not at twenty-four, but at twenty-three that the players of the France team began training open to the media, this Monday in Doha, in a calm and studious atmosphere.
The fresh air, which has been invited in recent days in the capital of the emirate, is present to rock the session which takes place without Alphonse Areola.
No major concerns
Spared and in care, like Eduardo Camavinga or Kingsley Coman a few days earlier, the third goalkeeper in the hierarchy suffers from lower back pain which does not inspire particular concern for the tricolor staff.
Didier Deschamps will have to decide between Steve Mandanda and Hugo Lloris to start the third group match against Tunisia, this Wednesday (4 p.m., TF 1 and beIN Sports).
The Tottenham goalkeeper is only one step away from equaling Lilian Thuram's historic caps record (142), but the coach may very well decide to launch Mandanda, as he did in a similar context there four years in Russia against Denmark.
For the rest, all available outfield players take part in training normally.
