France National Team – Wesley Fofana, forgetting Deschamps makes Ivorians happy

Transferred to Chelsea this summer, Wesley Fofana hopes to step up and play in the 2022 World Cup. The center-back is awaiting a summons with the Blues. But the Frenchman, never called up by coach Didier Deschamps, also has the opportunity to play for the Ivory Coast.

This time, nobody can accuse Didier Deschamps. When the coach the french team had rushed to call up Boubacar Kamara last June, when rumors sent him to Senegal, many suspected he had locked down the defensive midfielder. Since then, the Blues coach has categorically denied it. It is true that Didier Deschamps could have done it again with Wesley Fofana.

Ivory Coast insists

Indeed, the coach never summoned the Chelsea center-back, not even during the last match marked by numerous injuries. However, the occasion was ideal knowing that Wesley Fofana can always change teams. According to L’Equipe, the Ivorian Federation is forcing the former Stéphanois to be convinced, also pushed by his entourage. Suffice it to say that the threat is real, although the Blues debutant does not hide his goal of joining the tricolor team.


The France team is necessarily on the minds of all French playersWesley Fofana recently confided in the sports daily. First you have to be good on the pitch, in every game, every weekend, no matter where. But I also know that at Chelsea I put a little more luck on my side. The World Cup in Qatar, a goal? Of course ! I want to represent my country. I’m not obsessed with it, I’ve come back from so far, from seven months of rehab. I know it’s going to be difficult, that there are many great players in my position, but I’m going to fight with my weapons to try to convince the coach. Time is running out for the French under-23 international.
