France: Areola starter, Dembélé very uncertain

National Pie Zapping Top 10: The best active scorers in Ligue 1

Alphonse Areola will put on the gloves again. This Saturday, at a press conference, the coach of the France team, Didier Deschamps, effectively confirmed the permanence of the West Ham goalkeeper for the Nations League match against Denmark tomorrow (8:45 p.m.). In Copenhagen, the ex-Parisian will continue like this after being released at half-time in the match against Austria on Thursday (2-0), following Mike Maignan’s injury. “He’s going to start,” Didier Deschamps confirmed, because “whenever he plays he does well. He has few selections but he’s lived. Alphonse is there because he has quality.”

The doubt necessarily arose since after Mike Maignan’s bump, a calf blow, the Blues’ coach decided on Friday to call in the battle-hardened Steve Mandanda (37) as reinforcements. Already orphaned by his usual owner and captain Hugo Lloris, in addition to countless players, the Basque coach also mentioned the Ousmane Dembélé case. And the latter is very uncertain for this Sunday’s meeting. During today’s session, the FC Barcelona winger, who is in great form since the start of the season, will train separately. A decision will be made after training, Didier Deschamps said.

To sum up
