The substitutes will still have playing time during the 2022 World Cup. Our colleagues from The Team explain this Tuesday that the players who have not played the first two matches of the France team, in group Dagainst Australia (November 22) then against Denmark (November 26), will participate in an opposition the next day against the youngsters of the Qatari team of Al Gharafa, current 4th in the local championship after 7 days.
During the 2018 World Cup in Russia, the staff of the Blues had opted for the same configuration. The 23 French had at the time faced the U19 of Spartak Moscow, resident of the Russian Premier League. This will allow Didier Deschamps to keep all his players concerned and physically ready if necessary during the competition, which will start this Sunday, November 20 with a Qatar – Ecuador (5 p.m.).
