France National Team coach Didier Deschamps announced his squad for France’s upcoming UEFA Nations League 2022 fixtures to be played in the month of June. Marseille midfielder Boubacar Kamara earned his first national call up to the squad. Another headline was that Olivier Giroud failed to get a place in Didier Deschamps’s squad for the upcoming Nations League matches. The reason behind Giroud’s omission is that Karim Benzema has returned after missing the previous games through injury. Arsenal defender William Saliba, who featured in two matches in the previous round of fixtures has also been selected once again. 2018 World champions France defeated Spain 2-1 in the final of previous edition to win the Nations League 2021 title. They will be hoping to get their hands on the trophy again. Let’s take a look at France UEFA Nations League 2022 Squad.
