Removed from the France team since October 2019, Blaise Matuidi could be part of the list of players selected by Didier Deschamps for the Euro. Despite his departure to Inter Miami last summer, he has always said he would respond in blue if selected.
Blaise Matuidi has not been called to the French team since October 2019. A year and a half later, will the midfielder make his return to the selection? The list of players selected by Didier Deschamps to play the Euro (June 11-July 11) must be unveiled Tuesday evening. If the return of Karim Benzema is announced, another returning could be called, Blaise Matuidi. His case was discussed until Tuesday morning and appears to be an interesting solution for Didier Deschamps, looking for experienced players but who would not be reluctant to be one of the three players left in the stands for each match.

I am always available if we need me. not a few months on another continent that have changed the Blaise that we know. I remain a soldier. So if we call the soldier Blaise, he will be there to respond… “, explains the 2018 world champion on Wednesday in the columns of the team. Matuidi has 84 selections for the French team, between September 2010 and October 2019 (9 goals).
