Author of a great season with FC Nantes, Randal Kolo Muani offered his first pre-selection with the Blues. Waiting for more…

The weeks pass and the 2022 World Cup is slowly but surely approaching. In a little over six months, the French team will therefore have the opportunity to put their title back into play, four years after their success in the final against Croatia, during the Russian World Cup in 2018. At the time, Olivier Giroud was a tricolor executive. Since then, he has fallen from his pedestal and after several months of shelving, he made an unexpected return last March. But nothing says that Didier Deschamps will count on him next November. Especially since a new kid is knocking at the door.

As revealed RMC this Saturday, Randal Kolo Muani has been shortlisted for the first time in his career by the tricolor coach. To his advantage throughout the season with FC Nantes, the striker that Thierry Henry compared at the start of the season to Nwankwo Kanueven offered the Coupe de France that the canaries won against Nice (0-1). So many reasons for Didier Deschamps to open a first airlock to the French A team.

Nantes in force

The profile of the future Eintracht Frankfurt striker resembles in some respects that of Olivier Giroud. Strong of its meter eighty-seven, the French centre-forward can also serve as an anchor point to free up space for its partners. Also agile for such a size, the man is comfortable with the ball. It could well be the surprise of the chef of Didier Deschamps. He is not the only Nantes to point the tip of his nose at the door of the Blues because RMC adds that the doorman Alban Laffont is also preselected.
