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.

Spain’s European Championship campaign so far has been one filled with revelations. From young Lamine Yamal and Nico Williams on the wings to the ever-so-solid midfield, La Roja have impressed across the park and have taken the tournament by storm.

One such player who has played a critical role for the team despite not being in many pundits’ squad for the tournament is Fabian Ruiz. The PSG midfielder has been sensational for Luis de la Fuente’s men so far, scoring once and providing one assist in two games.

Despite not having any direct links with Real Madrid, the Spanish midfielder interestingly credits Davide Ancelotti for his success and AS brings the story.

A chapter in Naples

Fabian Ruiz may have never played for Los Blancos in his career so far, but he crossed paths with the Ancelottis in Naples a few years ago.

Ruiz signed for the Italian club from Real Betis in 2018 for a fee of €30 million. At the time, he was not known widely and was just seen as another routine Spanish midfielder aspiring to make it big.

As revealed by the player in a recent interview, however, it was Carlo Ancelotti’s son and Real Madrid assistant manager Davide Ancelotti who first saw the spark in him.

“Meeting him was a very important step in my career. From the beginning, he backed me, and it was not easy to pay what Napoli paid for me, a player who had not played much in La Liga with Betis.”

“If it weren’t for him, I wouldn’t be here. I have a very good relationship and friendship with him,” he added.

A special eye

Ruiz’s comments on Davide Ancelotti only make it clearer as to why Carlo Ancelotti holds his son’s advice in high regard. It is, after all, a testament to the tactician’s keen eye for special talent.

As revealed earlier this year, it was the manager’s son who suggested Joselu’s substitution against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League semifinals when the team was on the brink of elimination.

What happened next was history as the veteran scored twice within minutes to turn the game around and send the Bavarians crashing out.

Davide has been rumoured to be interested in walking his own path soon as a specialist coach, but as it stands, will continue working under his father for at least one more year at Real Madrid.
