Tchouameni has been added to the France squad for the 2022 World Cup, while Camavinga has been removed.

France comes to World Cup 2022 with a much changed lineup compared to 4 years ago

After dominating play in Russia four and a half years ago, France will be represented in the 2022 World Cup as the defending champion.

However, things will be different without some stars from the 2018 victory, including as Paul Pogba, N’Golo Kante, and Samuel Umtiti, all of whom are out with injuries.
Even without the reigning Ballon d’Or winner, Karim Benzema, there is enough talent to get them this far.


Les Bleus will have to figure out their lineup for the upcoming winter tournament in Qatar, where they will face Australia, Tunisia, and potentially Denmark in the group round.

Tchouameni leads the midfield

Hugo Lloris, the captain, should continue in goal since he has seldom allowed an own goal over the past decade and because he won the coveted title four years ago in Moscow.

Didier Deschamps has been trying out a three-back formation as of late, but he may switch to a more traditional four-back for the tournament, which would strengthen his midfield options. that.

Benjamin Pavard, who was also a part of the 2018 squad, will keep his right back position and, assuming he is healthy after missing the last few games, will partner Raphael Varane in the middle of the defense. in attendance for Manchester United.

Theo Hernandez, who is more of an offensive danger than his brother Lucas, is set to start in place of Jules Kounde and join the new group at the World Cup.

Pogba and Kante’s starting positions in the midfield will be filled by Aurelien Tchouameni of Real Madrid and Adrien Rabiot of Juventus, two players who have gotten off to strong starts this year.

In the attacking third, France is stacked with quality. Antoine Griezmann, a personal favorite of Deschamps, will assume the position behind the primary striker.


Kylian Mbappe, the team’s best player, will play on the left wing, where he will have more opportunities to penetrate the defense and score goals.

Ousmane Dembele, who plays on the right wing, has been in outstanding form recently and, despite not contributing much to the defense, could still have an impact on the tournament.

Despite Olivier Giroud’s stellar play in France, Benzema will start at number 9 in order to atone for his disappointing performance in the last tournament and win the World Cup. his reverberation.

In addition to the aforementioned individuals, Christopher Nkunku, Matteo Guendouzi, William Saliba, and Eduardo Camavinga are also present, providing substantial depth.
