Kingsley Coman’s superb match against Kazakhstan highlights the weakness that was that of the right side of the Blues in recent months. But will Didier Deschamps dare to keep his post?
It is undoubtedly the sector of the game where the site is the most important in the French team. Holder since the 2018 World Cup, Benjamin Surname is far from giving all the guarantees on the right flank of the defense, but the lack of competition allows it to retain its place. The problem is that the recent change of system operated by Didier Deschamps brings the Bayern Munich player to play a notch higher, in a role of right piston where his limits (offensive, essentially) are highlighted.

Pavard had been in great difficulty against Switzerland, not at ease either in the League of Nations against Spain and Belgium.

Because Deschamps will have to dare to repeat this experience against a nation more dangerous than Kazakhstan, against a team that could exploit the shortcomings of the Bayern winger on the defensive level. ” I never do a one shot, it’s an option. Is it possible to repeat it? Yes it’s possible“, Assures Deschamps, before warning: “Faced with other opponents, it requires adjustments. ” We should therefore review the titular Coman as a straight piston. But not all the time…
