Hugo Lloris (Tottenham) and Steve Mandanda (Stade Rennais) having announced their international retirement, Didier Deschamps will start a new cycle of goalkeepers in the France team.

Areola, first goalkeeper of the post Lloris – Mandanda era?

If Mike Maignan (AC Milan) is the natural replacement for the two former Blues captains, the former Lille player should not be fully operational and in good shape for the Euro 2024 qualifying matches against the Netherlands (March 24 ) and against Ireland (27). It is therefore with an “outsider” that the new cycle will start.

According to Le Parisien, Didier Deschamps has already made his choice and it is the n°3 of the last World Cup, Alphonse Areola, who will keep the goals for the France team in these two matches. Behind him, the 1998 and 2018 World Champion would have planned to summon Alban Lafont (FC Nantes) and Illan Meslier (Leeds).

Areola holder in March in the goals of the Blues?

Didier Deschamps intends to remain on a form of continuity in the France team after the retirements of Hugo Lloris and Steve Mandanda. If Mike Maignan is not 100%, it will be Alphonse Aréola’s turn to guard the Blues cages.
