Corinne Diacre names her squad for the Mexico friendly

The France manager has called up a new player forward Clara Mateo who won the U-19 Euros in 2016 and called back midfielder Kenza Dali who had been out of the squad for a long time due to injuries. There is no current U-20 player called up.

2018/19 is a big season for France with the World cup at home in June being the target and many players will hope to make the final 23 players squad, as it is clearly not settled yet for a good number of places.

The Mexico game squad is as follows

GK : Benameur, Bouhaddi, Durand
DF : Debever, Karchaoui, Majri, Mbock, Périsset, Renard, Torrent
MF : Bilbault, Diallo, Diani, Geyoro, Henry, Toletti
FW : Asseyi, D.Cascarino, Dali, Le Sommer, Matéo, Sarr, Thiney

GK  it is quite obvious that Bouhaddi will be there with her experience in the game, Benameur could get the number 1 shirt though, the hierarchy is not decided yet. Durand is the current number three goalie, but Chavas with the U-20 team right now might come into the equation later.

RB Torrent has the shirt and Perisset is her understudy at the moment

LB Majri is the number one choice with Karchaoui her back-up. U-20 players Bacha and Baltimore might offer an alternative later in the season, if one of the two  main players performance level drops.

CB Renard and M’Bock Bathy are certainties to go to the World Cup, except for an injury of course, Debever is in the squad, she was a very late call up at age 29 last season. It will be interesting to see what Tounkara does at Athletico Madrid this season.

CM Henry and Geyoro will make the final squad, Diallo has been a constant choice from Diacre for a while now. Bilbault is a defensive midfielder who will compete for a fringe player place, while Toletti will certainly try to grab an attacking midfielder spot with players like Lavogez and Corboz also vying for a squad place.

Wingers Le Sommer is used there by Diacre rather than in the middle and is more or less the only winger guaranteed to be there in June. Asseyi has been a regular call-up under Diacre mainly in a substitute role. Can she fight the competition of Diani and Cascarino who have both failed so far to show any real consistency overall. Both are skillful but do not show it often enough with France. Dali has just been called back into the squad, it will be interesting to see where she fits in.

Centre forwards newcomer Mateo played fr all the youth national teams with success. Sarr has been a regular as well under Diacre but not consistent so far. Thiney of course, is a very experienced players in a team that does not hold many of them.  U-20 players Katoto and Delabre could be called up in the next squad depending on how they perform with their clubs, especially Katoto who has a huge potential.

There is no doubt that from the 23 players list a good number of those will be in the final world Cup squad. But there will be  a lot of places also up for grabs  now and throughout the season.

With a home World Cup to come, the pressure will be huge for the manager, staff and players to win the trophy and mental strength has not always been a feature in France’s previous tournament alongside the lack of clinical finishing of course.
