Florian Thauvin dreams of a return to the French squad

During an interview given with L’Équipe, French World Cup winner Florian Thauvin (29) spoke about his intentions to return to the French squad, despite his near three-year absence. The right-winger left Europe last summer to play his club football for Mexican side Tigres.

“As long as I’m playing, I will think of the French team. I will never forget the idea of Les Bleus! I still receive the pre-call ups. I’ve had the chance to be double World Champion. My attachment to the shirt is tremendous. It will always be a dream to return to the French team and to hold my country’s shirt high.”

The 29-year-old’s last international cap came against Andorra in June of 2019, however Thauvin has represented his country at the Tokyo Olympics since then.
