Kolo Muani to make France debut – Deschamps also calls up Nkunku

Coach Didier Deschamps has announced his squad for the next two matches of the French national team. “Les Bleus” will host Austria on 22 September and travel to Denmark on 25 September.

Coach Deschamps has nominated 23 players. The former Marseille coach is facing a flood of injuries two months before the World Cup in Qatar. The list includes regulars such as Varane, Lloris and Griezmann. Also included are Ousmane Dembélé (FC Barcelona) and Olivier Giroud (AC Milan).

Three newcomers appear in the senior squad for the first time: Fofana, Badiashile and Kolo Muani. The former FC Nantes player is the big surprise in this list. The Eintracht Frankfurt striker is rewarded for his very good start to the season with the Eagle Bearers. Referring to Kolo Muani, Deschamps explained: “Randal has a lot of quality. He brings presence, takes depth and has good efficiency. “
