France have recalled Clement Lenglet as a replacement for the injured defender Presnel Kimpembe, who withdrew on Thursday.
Originally the defensive line of the Paris club Saint-Germain Named in the first-team squad, Didier Deschamps will feature in football World Cup qualifiers against Kazakhstan and Finland in the middle of this month, but the player has had to withdraw from injury.
A statement from the French Football Federation said Kimpembe had a muscle problem in the back of his left thigh. As a result, had to withdraw, which the ‘Dede’ called Lenglet to act instead.
It is bad news for the chicken badge that they have to lose another key defender. Because Raphael Varane previously suffered an injury while serving at Manchester United in the Champions League.
As for the absence of Waran and Kimpembe. It will definitely affect the organization of the chicken badge, because the team later adjusted to play in the 3-man defensive system.
During his press conference, the coach mentioned the last half-hearted performances of Presnel Kimpembé. “He knows the consequences like the last one in Leipzig yesterday. He knows he is responsible. OK Kimpembe is not doing everything well, but he is one of those who follow the match. Maybe a little too much. But Mauricio Pochettino also has his goals and he lines up the team to win.
Presnel may have less good periods. There are things he can improve. Because of what he does in the sequence, he may be less good. I also look at the positive part, more important than the negative. What he brings to the Blues is important. But he gets carried away a little too much in some duels. It can avoid some mistakes or some boxes. But that’s because he likes duels. ”
