Lucas Digne confided to Téléfoot on Sunday his ambitions for the France team. Absent at the 2018 World Cup, the left side hopes to move to the Blues and compete in the Euro next June.
Present at the 2014 World Cup then unfortunate finalist of Euro 2016 with the Blues, Lucas Digne was not selected at the 2018 World Cup in Russia. Saddened to have missed out on the world title, the left side dreams of a new chance at the next Euro (from June 11 to July 11).
“Obviously it was a disappointment (not to play the 2018 World Cup), recognized the defender of Everton at the microphone of the Téléfoot show. After I had my transfer to Everton and I quickly projected myself towards the future. I have worked. Now we have to look forward. It’s past and we can’t go back on it. “
Worthy: “Pleasant to be able to chain”
In parallel with his very good performances this season in the Premier League under the direction of Carlo Ancelotti (13 appearances for 6 assists), Lucas Digne made a nice return to the Blues. Taking advantage of the physical glitches of Lucas Hernandez or Benjamin Mendy since 2018, the player trained at LOSC has found a place in the French group with nine starts in the last 17 games of the France team.
“I have more and more playing time and it also shows the confidence that the coach has in me, again savored the man with 35 caps with the France team. It is necessarily pleasant to be able to chain the performance with the blue jersey. “
A metamorphosis that could well reshuffle the cards before the next continental competition. Didier Deschamps has an additional option on the left: “We must be part of the young people who mature, for his part abounded the French coach. The matches he has made since I recalled him are much more consistent offensively and defensively . “
With the brothers Lucas and Théo Hernandez, or the namesakes Benjamin and Ferland Mendy and therefore Lucas Digne, the boss of the Blues has no shortage of solutions in the left lane of the defense. Plenty is no plague.
