WORLD CUP – Blues – Lucas Hernandez definitely package, the Blues on a wire: Who to help out on the left?

Théo Hernandez will end up under glass. This Tuesday, unsurprisingly, his brother Lucas, victim of a major knee injury against Australia, passed examinations which acted his package for the rest of the competition, communicated the FFF, and froze his teammates. Victim of a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, the 26-year-old Bayern Munich player cannot be replaced in the group of Didier Deschamps, coach of the Blues who will have to play the rest of the World Cup with a group of twenty- four players.

Safety in duels, Pogba-style relaunch: Upamecano’s score of 7 debriefed

I am very sad for him tonight, named Benjamin Pavard very touched. I think it affected me even on the pitch. He’s a great guy, at Bayern we’re always together.“Just returned from injury with Bayern, the Munich player has suffered a severe relapse and his World Cup is limited to nine short minutes and enormous frustration. From then on, the Blues must rethink themselves. His successor is all found in the person of Théo Hernández.

“Against Australia, Mbappé and Giroud made us forget Benzema”

His debut made in Blue makes him more than a resort when he held the position of left piston for a year. Admittedly, the Milanese must erase some defensive shortcomings but his CV provides certain guarantees. But behind him, Didier Deschamps no longer has any obvious alternative. “I will find other solutions compared to Lucas“Yet Didier Deschamps swore on Tuesday at a press conference.

If we want to be quiet in all positions we should take 33 players

Which ones? Of the eight defenders and six midfielders, only Théo Hernandez, Adrien Rabiot and Eduardo Camavinga are left-handed. Adrien Rabiot, emergency solution at the Euro, is too essential in the middle in the absence of Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kanté. Therefore, imagining Eduardo Camavinga as the only alternative in the event of injury or suspension of Théo Hernandez must give Didier Deschamps cold sweats.

The coach may regret not having brought to Qatar the very reliable Lucas Digne, still strong in Blue, or Madrid’s Ferland Mendy. He chose to multiply the right-handers in defense even if Presnel Kimpembe’s package deprived him of a solution. “If we want to be quiet in all positions we should take 33 players“, commented DD who had the possibility of taking 26 players but was satisfied with 25. Sure that this Tuesday, he must still bite his fingers and pray that nothing bad happens to the only one left back that he has left on hand.
