This Thursday afternoon, the coach of the France team Didier Deschamps will announce the list of Blues selected for the next two matches of the tricolores counting for the qualifiers of Euro 2024. Despite an eventful summer, star Kylian Mbappé will be part of the group.

Didier Deschamps will announce this Thursday afternoon at 14 pm at the headquarters of the federation his list for the next two matches of the Blues. The France team will face Ireland on September 7 at the Parc des Princes as part of the Euro 2024 qualifiers. The French players will then travel on September 12 to Dortmund, Germany, in the country that will host the next Euro.

Mbappé again decisive and indispensable according to Alain Giresse

This was the question football fans were asking: will Kylian Mbappé be called up by Didier Deschamps to the France team after his very turbulent summer in Paris? The Paris striker was sidelined for several weeks from the first team. The star did not take part in the camp in Japan. Finally, on August 12, the top scorer in the history of PSG was reinstated. Since then, the superstar has scored 3 goals, one in Lorient and two more against Lens.

Now it's the end of a false suspense. Didier Deschamps will pronounce his name this Thursday when the list is announced. To our colleagues of L'Equipe, the coach had already warned that he would have, whatever happens, called Kylian Mbappé which he can not do without in the team of France.

Despite this tug-of-war with the Parisian club and the eternal questions around his future, Kylian Mbappé seems impervious to pressure and remains indispensable in Blue, confirms Europe 1 football consultant Alain Giresse: "Questions about Kylian Mbappé, there are every day, he is used to it, that's not what destabilizes him. He finds the PSG team, he scores goals, he is again decisive. Didier Deschamps had said it: 'Whether he plays or not, I will take him'. Now he's back. There was nothing to worry about." The Parisian striker will still have the opportunity to shine on Sunday evening in Lyon for the 4th day of Ligue 1.

PSG's attack is also that of the France

Kylian Mbappé will not be the only Parisian called this Thursday by Didier Deschamps. His teammate Ousmane Dembélé, freshly arrived in the capital, will also be in the game. The duo is already making sparks in Ligue 1 and should still delight the supporters of the France team. This duo of the Blues and PSG could very quickly turn into a trio. Randal Kolo Muani, 9 caps and 1 goal, has just started a showdown with his club Eintracht Frankfurt. The native of Bondy like Mbappe, dried yesterday the training and is currently in Paris to negotiate his contract. The German club castigates his attitude and will not play the next European Cup match scheduled for Thursday. Frankfurt will host Levski Sofia in the second leg of the Conference Europa League. Randal Kolo Muani wants to sign for PSG before the end of the transfer window which ends Friday night, at 23:59.

A list that should be unsurprisingly ensured, says the consultant Europe 1 Alain Giresse in this fall. The France team has won its first four games of the Euro qualifying group (4-0 win over the Netherlands; Ireland's 1-0 win; Portugal's 3-0 win over Gibraltar and 1-0 win over Greece) and has 12 points. A success against Ireland should allow the Blues to practically validate their ticket for Euro 2024.
