According to the Minister of Sports, Amélie Oudéa-Castera, the President of the Republic, Emmanuel Macron, is considering the idea of taking Karim Benzema and the other injured Blues with him to attend the 2022 World Cup final between the France and Argentina on Sunday afternoon (4 p.m.) at the Lusail stadium.
Didier Deschamps had to deal with an incredible number of injured players for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, who had to withdraw from the squad.
The coach of the France team may be able to count on their support on Sunday at the Lusail stadium on the occasion of the final against Argentina (3pm local time).
While Deschamps dismissed an improbable return of Karim Benzema to face Lionel Messi and co, but also Paul Pogba, N’Golo Kanté, Mike Maignan, Christopher Nkunku or even Presnel Kimpembe could travel to Qatar with the President of the Republic before attending the World Cup final in the stands of the Lusail stadium.
In any case, this is Emmanuel Macron’s wish according to Amélie Oudéa-Castéra on RTL: “I know he wants to. I know that this is being considered. We will see if logistically and materially, all of this can land. In any case, it is the President’s wish to get them on board, [so] that they can fully take their part in this adventure.”
