Only two months are left in the FIFA World Cup 2022 and the team is facing serious problems because of present issues in the squad. While they are supposed to train their best to regain their title, there are conflicts and turbulence.
Controversies around the France World Cup
The French Football Federation (FFF) and Kylian Mbappe are still at war over the players’ image rights deal. The FFF (and its president, Noel Le Graet), under pressure from Mbappe. He had earlier complained about it in March, initially declaring back in June that it would change the agreement, but nothing was done. Mbappe said on Monday that he will not participate in Tuesday’s events or the sponsored national team picture shoots.
Le Graet is also at the center of the controversy because of his close bond with Deschamps. According to French media reports, he has been charged with sending inappropriate text messages to female FFF employees. While covering up or failing to take action about numerous events involving French football over the previous few years.
In the media during the previous few weeks, Paul Pogba-related articles have also surfaced. A group of his childhood buddies allegedly tried to extort money from the Juventus midfielder, who is presently in Italy under police protection. Mathias, his own brother, is being kept in jail together with four other men, all of whom are known to Paul, while they wait for a judgment on bail after being accused of extortion.
Unfortunately, players are also facing injury
The foundation of the group that will participate in Qatar is also suffering from minor injuries. With the players currently unavailable, Deschamps could select an entire team, and what a team it would be. Like Karim Benzema and Kingsley Coman are the front two, with Lloris in goal, Ibrahima Konate, Lucas Hernandez, Presnel Kimpembe, and Theo Hernandez manning the back line.
Will there be a chance for France to win the World Cup?
