Faced with the withdrawal of Lucas Hernandez, the coach of the France team Didier Deschamps must find a solution within his group to possibly replace his only professional left-back, Tho Hernandez, during the 2022 World Cup. midfielder Eduardo Camavinga has been tested.
Eduardo Camavinga soon left side with the Blues?
This is clearly the big shadow in the picture after the victory of the French team against Australia (4-1) on Tuesday: the serious knee injury of left-back Lucas Hernandez, package for the entire Cup of the world 2022.
To replace him as starter, his brother Tho has already provided guarantees with a successful entry against the Australians. But to eventually supplement the talent of AC Milan, the tricolor coach Didier Deschamps will have to rack his brains within his current group.
Camavinga test against youngsters
Because reading the workforce of the Blues, there is no obvious solution behind Tho Hernandez. With now no left-handers among the central defenders, it seems complicated to put Dayot Upamecano or Ibrahima Konat in this lane, even to help out. The idea of bringing down a winger? Ousmane Dembl or Kinglsey Coman could make the effort, but it’s hard to see this lasting option in the event of a real problem with the Milanese.
Faced with this situation, Deschamps obviously had an original idea: Eduardo Camavinga. Indeed, according to information from RMC radio, the Real Madrid midfielder was tested in this role during the substitutes’ match against Al-Markhiya U19s (4-0) on Wednesday. It must be said that in the tricolor group, the former Rennais is one of the few left-handers.
Fingers crossed for T. Hernandez…
With his qualities, Camavinga seems able to render services in this position. In any case, defensively, the native of Miconje can hold on, even if he has no benchmarks in this role. In the obligation to find a plan B, Deschamps clearly does with the means at hand. And the boss of the Blues must above all cross his fingers in order to avoid the slightest problem with Tho Hernandez…
