Camavinga’s message to Didier Deschamps following World Cup call-up for France
France are one of the front runners to take home the FIFA World Cup in Qatar this year, defending their title from the 2018 edition.
However, Didier Deschamps’ side look less dangerous on paper this time around because of a particularly weak setup in midfield, especially given that Paul Poga and N’Golo Kante are unavailable.
Given his resource constraints in the middle of the park, the manager has chosen some surprising candidates for the upcoming event, some of whose selection has come as a big surprise. One such candidate is Real Madrid’s Eduardo Camavinga.
Earlier today, the Frenchman sent an important message to Deschamps, as relayed via Telefoot, reassuring both parties of his complete commitment to the cause.
“Hello coach, this is Eduardo. I would like to thank you for choosing me. I hope to restore that confidence to you during the World Cup.”
While Camavinga’s season at the club level has been far from convincing this season, there is no denying the youngster’s talent. He has been called the next big midfielder in French football for a long time now, and continues to display his quality in flashes during his minutes on the field.
The festival of football in Qatar will be the biggest tournament of the youngster’s life and also one of the biggest chances to prove his worth. If he can bring his A game, there is no stopping Camavinga from becoming a regular in the National Team setup.

Real Madrid, Barcelona, Liverpool monitoring 19-year-old Bundesliga wonderkid – Romano
According to Fabrizio Romano, Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Liverpool are all monitoring Bayer Leverkusen and Germany wonderkid Florian Wirtz.
After recovering from his ACL injury, the teenage sensation has been slowly working his way back to his best form. So far this term, Wirtz has managed to rack up a tally of two goals and six assists from 13 matches in all competitions.
The 19-year-old’s talent and potential have never been in question and hence it does not come as a surprise that elite clubs such as Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Liverpool are all keeping tabs on the German international.
A versatile attacking midfielder, Wirtz is capable of playing anywhere in the final third of the pitch and backs up with top-notch end product. Be it as a false-nine or in a more withdrawn role, the youngster has excelled for Bayer Leverkusen, catching the attention of top teams.
Real Madrid, for their part, are also understood to be among Wirtz’s admirers. Given the situation surrounding Karim Benzema’s fitness and the lack of backup at the top, the youngster could be an option, as he has shown potential while operating through the middle.
But Barcelona also have a strong interest in the teenager with reports even suggesting that they have already made contact with his father to enquire about his situation.
At the same time, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is understood to be a huge admirer of his fellow German and with Roberto Firmino on his way out, Wirtz could be lined up as a possible replacement.
However, Romano adds that the expectation is that Wirtz could stay at Bayer Leverkusen for one more year and depart Germany once the UEFA Euro 2024 is out of the way.
For now, there have been talks or negotiations with any clubs, but Real Madrid, Barcelona and Liverpool are all tracking Wirtz and his progress in Germany.
