Raphaël Varane almost certain to miss France’s first two games

According to L’Équipe, Real Madrid central defender Raphaël Varane is now almost certain to miss the first two games of EURO 2016, a huge blow for France and Didier Deschamps.

Real Madrid are also very pessimistic about the player’s chances of being at the tournament at all in any meaningful way.

Varane, who has proved to be one of France’s best defenders since Deschamps took over, would be an incredible loss.

Didier Deschamps is now very likely to implement a Mangala – Koscielny central defensive partnership, despite calling up Adil Rami to the reserves yesterday.
