Théo Hernandez makes a very nice start to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. The left side, however, has no professional replacement for the rest of the competition after the injury of his big brother against Australia.
Didier Deschamps left for Qatar with a precise and well-studied group of players. For the coach of theFrench team, each player must be able to have a role to play, whether on or off the field. For this World Cup, the Blues have a fairly small group and some positions are not well filled. This is the case for the sides. On the right, Benjamin Pavard has Jules Koundé (although usually a central defender), on the left, Théo Hernandez no longer has his brother Lucas, injured against Australia. In case of injury, Deschamps would therefore no longer have a professional left side. This is why DD has apparently already anticipated the blow by trying Eduardo Camavinga for this position. Moreover, for the last group match of the French team, Rolland Courbis does not want to hear about Théo Hernandez …
Hernandez replaced, Courbis gets annoyed
Théo Hernandez having no lining, it was Eduardo Camavinga who occupied the position of left side yesterday against a local club.

On the antennaRMC, the consultant has indeed given his opinion on the problem of the Blues on the left. And according to him, Didier Deschamps will not really have to take any risk with Theo Hernandez, too precious to be put against Tunisia when the qualification is already assured. “It is an obligation not to play Theo Hernandez. Left-back Camavinga? And why not the physio? No way ! Between trying and being ridiculous… I would put Pavard to help out and it won’t be the first time I’ve seen a right-handed left-back. (…) Pavard can troubleshoot. Let’s not talk about Camavinga, just to do him a favor. It’s not serious friends. On the right, I would put Koundé. If it’s like that, it’s not my fault.”, in particular indicated Rolland Courbis, who does not want to see strange fittings to fill the gaps in the workforce of the France team. We should know more very soon about Didier Deschamps’ intentions for this match against Tunisia, who will try to give everything to try to qualify. The Tunisians need an imperative victory.
