Axel Disasi replaces injured Jules Kounde in France squad
France will face Netherlands and Scotland in October games
For forthcoming matches, Axel Disasi has now received a last-minute call-up to the France national team. Jules Kounde, a defender for Barcelona, withdrew due to injury; a defender for Chelsea will take his spot.
Many people who have been following Disasi’s previous performance are going to be disappointed to see him not selected for the initial World Cup runners-up squad.
The player has been outstanding lately and has impressed ever since moving for £38 million last summer.
He was welcomed with little fanfare but made a quick mark on the supporters by netting against Liverpool on the first day of the campaign.
Disasi has been a mainstay in the squad at Chelsea under Mauricio Pochettino despite having outstanding players in his position.
