Axel Disasi is called up to reinforce Didier Deschamps' squad!
The central defender of AS Monaco has been called up by the coach of France to make up for William Saliba's absence for the two matches set to take place in the Euro 2024 qualifiers.

More great news fter a strong win over Ajaccio (0-2)! Disappointed not to be called in the initial list last Thursday, Axel Disasi will now join France during the international break. The vice-captain of the Rouge et Blanc has indeed been called in as a reinforcement by Didier Deschamps, following the withdrawal of Arsenal’s William Saliba. Youssouf Fofana will therefore not head to Clairefontaine alone.

One more World Cup runner-up

Present among the 23 for France for the two qualifying matches of Euro 2024 against the Netherlands (March 24 at 8:45 p.m.) and against Northern Ireland (March 27, 8:45 p.m.), the Monegasque midfielder will fly to Paris alongside his teammate. The two played in the World Cup for the country in December, and now Axel and Youssouf will take part in these first international matches of 2023.

With three appearances in the World Cup, the native of Gonesse is the seventh player from the Principality club to be called up this international break in March — in addition to the nine youngsters from the Academy also called up. Daghe Axel! 🇫🇷
