Moreover, Karim Benzema’s inclusion into the France squad after a period of six years has surprised many experts. Benzema was out of the national team after he was allegedly being involved in a sex tape blackmail plot.
Other than Benzema’s surprise inclusion, Deschamps has also excluded a few big names. RB Leipzig midfielder Dayot Upamecano and Barcelona’s Samuel Umtiti have failed to find their place in Didier’s 26 men squad.
