World Cup 2022: the list of packages is growing for the Blues



This is a new blow for Didier Deschamps, six days before the debut of the French team in the World Cup in Qatar. The coach of the Blues announced Wednesday, November 16 the summons of Frankfurt striker Randal Kolo Muani for the competition. The 23-year-old player (2 sections in the national team), currently training in Japan, will join his teammates in Doha on Thursday morning.

He replaces Christopher Nkunku in the list of 26 World Cup participants. The former Parisian, who has had a string of good performances at his club Leipzig, was forced to forfeit Tuesday, November 15 due to a sprained left knee contracted during training.

Absent holders

For several weeks, the multiplication of injuries has been a headache for Didier Deschamps. Several locker room executives will not participate in the competition, especially in midfield. This is particularly the case for Paul Pogba (knee) and N’Golo Kanté (hamstrings). The two players had played a major role in the coronation of the Blues in Moscow in 2018. In the midfield, the coach will therefore have to resort to players without much experience in selection and who have played little or not at all together.

At the end of October, Mike Maignan had thrown in the towel due to a calf injury. The goalkeeper was replaced by veteran Steve Mandanda, who currently plays for Rennes.

The French defense was not spared either. Less than a week after the announcement of the list of players summoned to the World Cup, the defender of Paris Saint-Germain Presnel Kimpembe, claiming a starting place in the central hinge, has also given up going to Qatar due to from an insufficiently healed injury to the Achilles tendon. He was replaced by the Monegasque Axel Disasi.

Maignan dismissed, Mandanda summoned: discover the list of 25 selected for the World Cup in Qatar


They will aim to repeat the feat of 2018. The coach of the France team, Didier Deschamps, announced a list of 25 players, Wednesday, November 9 to the 8 p.m. newspaper of TF1, to participate in the World Cup in Qatar (from November 20 to December 18).

Due to the busy schedule, FIFA had authorized qualified coaches to give an expanded list of their squad, up to 26 players. Didier Deschamps, first opposed to a larger group, after an unfortunate experience during the previous Euro, finally made 25 happy.

An environment to rethink

Among the big winners, Liverpool player Ibrahima Konaté was retained, to the detriment of defenders like Lucas Digne or Ferland Mendy. Goalkeeper Mike Maignan, barely recovered from an injury, was not selected, to the delight of Steve Mandanda, already present in Russia four years ago.

Private in the midfield of Paul Pogba and N’Golo Kanté, injured, coach Deschamps opted for a midfielder without a world champion, with Adrien Rabiot, Aurélien Tchouaméni, Youssouf Fofana, Eduardo Camavinga, and the Marseillais Mattéo Guendouzi and Jordan Veretout.

Giroud the survivor

In a duel with Karim Benzema at the forefront of the tricolor attack, Olivier Giroud was not guaranteed to participate in a new World Cup. If he had been recalled to the last gathering of the Blues, last September, Didier Deschamps doubted the ability of the Grenoble to accept a role of lining, facing the last Ballon d’Or. His qualities and his level of play demonstrated throughout the start of the season with his Milan team will have finally convinced the coach to retain him in the list of 25.

Artisan of the coronation in Russia, even if the latter had not scored any goals, he will have the opportunity, through this competition to dethrone Thierry Henry in the ranking of scorers in the France team. With 49 goals on the clock, he is now only two units behind the 98 world champion.

Changes still possible

Eleven 2018 world champions are thus included in the list, the final version of which must be sent to Fifa no later than Monday, November 14 at 7 p.m. In the event of serious injury, last-minute substitutions are still authorized until November 21, the day before the start of the match against Australia.

The France team will start its group stage on Tuesday, November 22 against the Australian Socceros. On Saturday November 26, they will meet Christian Eriksen’s Denmark and finish against Tunisia on Wednesday November 30. Fourth in the FIFA rankings, behind Brazil, Belgium and Argentina, France is one of the favorites for this World Cup in Qatar.

Tokyo Olympics: the final list of the French football team difficult to formalize



As expected, there will be the stars André-Pierre Gignac and Florian Thauvin, but also the very unexpected Ismaël Doukouré, Alexis Beka Beka or Modibo Sagnan: laboriously constructed by Sylvain Ripoll, faced with the reluctance of the clubs, the list of the team of France football for the Olympics has been updated by the coach.

The federation published a first list last week, but many clubs refused to release the selected players, as they are entitled to since the Olympic tournament (from July 21 to August 7) ​​is not on the official Fifa calendar. .

→ EXPLANATION. Covid-19: how Japan is trying by all means to save the Tokyo Olympics

Ripoll therefore had to replace several players, such as Rennais Eduardo Camavinga, Lillois Jonathan Ikoné, Monegasque Benoît Badiashile or Niçois Amine Gouiri, with less popular elements.

A derogation to complete the list

Some clubs, such as Olympique Lyonnais (OL) or PSG, have however finally agreed to release a player, which has helped Ripoll to complete his list, but it remains nevertheless very far from what was initially planned.

Above all, it was extremely difficult to build and for a long time only counted about ten names, until a waiver from Fifa allowed the coach to draw outside the pre-list of 50 names. filed mid-May.

To justify their reluctance to release their players, some clubs have put forward important deadlines, such as Monaco which will play in August the preliminary rounds of the Champions League.

But in the end, the difficulties encountered by Ripoll are summed up by the fact that the list has only 21 names, against 22 authorized, knowing that two players, Lille striker Isaac Lihadji and Montpellier goalkeeper Dimitry Bertaud, remain for the ‘moment in club and will not go to Japan’ that in case of need “. In Group A, France will face Mexico, Japan and South Africa.

Ordinary things are now abnormal


After the pandemic, even with vaccines, people will still be afraid of some things such as shaking hands, going to eat out.

“What is familiar is no longer familiar,” said Lynn Bufka, an expert from the American Psychological Association. According to her, since the pandemic happened, people all over the world had to follow a series of safety rules, so when life was “opened” again, everyone needed time to adapt.

Some of the experiences and places below are very stressful in the post-pandemic period and how to handle them.

Eye contact

During times of social separation, most of us only make eye contact with family, supermarket cashier and co-workers (through the screen). Therefore, when meeting strangers, you may find yourself in a situation where you want to avoid their gaze by looking down.

According to Jane Webber, associate professor of trauma, stress and coping skills at Kean University, New Jersey, if you find it difficult, try to smile, even if it is as light as a smile. smile by Mona Lisa. That will make the other person feel comfortable and smile back at you.

Eye contact is the easiest thing to get used to again because eyes connect people and show care for each other.

In the middle of the crowd

Crowds will reappear in public places, in stark contrast to the deserted landscape during times of social separation.

Webber teaches students the “circle of protection”. “We put a flat rope or ribbon on the floor, then ask each person how big the circle is, they can feel safe in the crowd,” explained the female expert. “Most people say they need front and side space.”

Once you have determined how much space you need, use your elbow, leg or something like a shopping bag or supermarket trolley to create that space. If you need others to respect your boundaries, say softly: “I need space”.

If you become overly anxious, Webber advises you to take a breath and tell yourself: “In a few minutes I’ll be out of here.”

Shake hands and hug

Through a period of social separation, handshakes easily startle us by fear of spreading germs of disease. If you don’t like shaking hands, switch to waving or touching the elbow with the other person and frankly share that you are still a bit worried. “That way, you can still build a connection that the other person can understand and sympathize with,” Webber said.

Compared to shaking hands, a hug was probably more frightening. According to Webber, after the pandemic, not everyone was willing to accept hugs from others, no matter how touched they liked to be in the past. If you or someone else hugs and is still afraid of the epidemic, try a “butterfly hug”, which means crossing your arms, touching yourself and patting your shoulders.

Flirting and dating

A pandemic makes you ask many questions before you start getting to know someone. You will wonder if the person has been vaccinated or is willing to comply with health-protection regulations such as wearing a mask.

According to Bufka, these questions are really important because if they are in the same position, the two of you are more likely to be together for longer. Share what you did during the pandemic and ask the other person what else they have. Take notice, try to have a gentle, humble, and nonjudgmental conversation, whether or not you want the relationship to go away.

If you’re concerned about physical contact, share it with the other person. Example: “It’s been a while since I kissed others, so I forgot how to kiss”.

If you do not want to meet face to face, you can exchange social media accounts or phone numbers for online dating first.

Share public space

Imagine sitting on a bench and someone else offers to sit next to you, will you agree or disagree?

If you really don’t want to, you can say no by apologizing and saying that you haven’t been vaccinated. If you have been vaccinated, ask yourself if what you are worried about is at risk and then answer.

Helping others

If someone asked you to start the car, would you do it? According to Jacqueline Gollan, a professor at the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University, simplify those situations by having hand sanitizer and mask ready and assessing yourself if your worries are justified.

Going to beauty

After the pandemic, services like beauty treatments and massages may not be as relaxing as before. Ask your store what prevention measures they have in place and choose a place that is safe by your standards.

Anonymous in the V-League 2020


The push of some pillars to Hai Phong after relegation creates suspicions that Quang Ninh will give up the race in the V-League 2020. But in fact, they are the biggest unknown.

There is nothing to expect in the mining team after the first phase closes. They drew two consecutive matches after the V-League rematch for the second time. Before that, they only won two matches when facing relegation teams Da Nang and SLNA. But at the beginning of the second phase, a 3-0 victory over Binh Duong brought a scary message from Quang Ninh to the ambition to win the team.

Since coming to the V-League in 2014, excluding the first season when it was a fledgling and insufficient financial resource, Quang Ninh has always been in the top 5 for the last five consecutive seasons. Last year, they did their best, when they finished third. In terms of stability over the same period, only Hanoi is better than them. With that experience, the method of making football is relatively methodical, the fact that Quang Ninh has declared the championship probably does not surprise anyone. But that’s why the surprise happened when they drastically changed their forces recently.

But it seems that Quang Ninh has a different calculation method. Take two matches with Binh Duong that took place at Cam Pha Stadium recently as an example. The first match in round 12, phase one, the two teams drew 2-2 when Quang Ninh shot a lot of goal, but did not achieve high efficiency. In the rematch, in the first round, phase two, the Cam Pham team only shot the ball four times in the right direction, but scored three goals, and kept a clean sheet. This is the second consecutive match, the defense of Quang Ninh did not accept a goal, after the match with Saigon FC at the end of the first phase.

It can be seen that “pushing” the players on the attack line to go elsewhere does not affect the play style that coach Phan Thanh Hung wants. Quang Ninh focuses more on reinforcing the weak points in defense. Meanwhile, they have seven victories, equal to Saigon FC and Viettel, the gap with the two teams ranked above is just more than losing a win.

Only meeting Saigon FC, Viettel and Hanoi in the last three rounds of phase two can be considered as favorable for teachers and students Phan Thanh Hung. The next match, they will kick at Ha Tinh Stadium, then go home to play two consecutive matches, against HAGL and then Ho Chi Minh City. According to a favorable scenario, after these three games, Quang Ninh will have at least two more wins, surely keeping a place in the top 3 before kicking the “final” matches with the strongest candidates. Then, anything can happen.

Quang Ninh’s silence makes the championship race more dramatic, it reminds people of the story of Danang in 2012 and Quang Nam in 2017.. Those are the teams that are still believed to have ties to Hanoi by elected Hien. Quang Ninh was also classified into what is known as a “five-team alliance”. After Saigon FC was elected to transfer to the new owner, Quang Ninh is expected to follow in the footsteps of Da Nang and Quang Nam to the championship. So, maybe this will be the best time for the mining team to reach glory.

To be fair, no team is confident enough to clap their chest as stronger than the current Quang Ninh. Saigon FC had a seventh victory of the season, against Ha Tinh, but teachers and students Mr. Vu Tien Thanh had to hold their breath until the last minute to know for sure they had all three points. Sai Gon FC left Ha Tinh – the weakest team in the top 8 – 18 goal kicks, compared to their 12 times, of which nine were on the right track. If goalkeeper Pham Van Phong does not play well, Saigon FC has been divided. Viettel had a strong victory over HAGL with a score of 4-1, but it was a match that their opponents played very mediocre. Holding the ball a lot but did not put enough pressure on Viettel’s goal, the mountain town team received goals from situations that were not too dangerous. The current performance of both Saigon FC and Viettel is difficult to be better than Quang Ninh.

Only Hanoi FC is still the opponent that every team wants to win if they want to win. When Nguyen Quang Hai got back to himself, even if the opponents gave up their forte, put all their strength into defense like the Ho Chi Minh club did in the last match, it could only be postponed, not impossible. prevent the defending champions’ finishing blow.
