Deprived of part of his executives, the coach of the French men's basketball team Vincent Collet summoned three new in the group of twelve players who will face Germany, Montenegro and Great Britain in qualifying matches for Euro 2021.
Vincent Collet had to do without players playing in the NBA and Euroleague. Evan Fournier (Orlando), Nicolas Batum (Charlotte) or Nando de Colo (Fenerbahçe) are not among the players selected, due to an overloaded calendar.
It is therefore a rejuvenated French team which will present itself in qualifications for Euro 2021, where several players will make their debuts with the Blues like Isaïa Cordinier (23 years old, 1.91m), Alexandre Chassang (25 years, 2.04m) or David Michineau (25 years, 1.83m).
With Germany (February 21 and 29), Montenegro and Great Britain, the French team will have to avoid the last place in group G to validate their qualification for Euro-2021.
Germany, one of the host countries of the future competition, qualifies automatically, offering two tickets for the other three teams.
The France group (12):
Axel Bouteille (Bilbao Basket / ESP), Alexandre Chassang (JDA Dijon), Isaïa Cordinier (Nanterre 92), Moustapha Fall (Turk Telekom Ankara / TUR), Hugo Invernizzi (Limoges CSP), Axel Julien (JDA Dijon), Paul Lacombe ( AS Monaco), Amath M'Baye (Pinar Karsiyaka Izmir / TUR), David Michineau (Boulogne-Levallois Metropolitans), Yakuba Ouattara (AS Monaco), Axel Toupane (Unicaja Malaga / ESP), Guerschon Yabusele (Nanjing Tongxi Monkey Kings / CHN )
