Axel Disasi is called up to reinforce Didier Deschamps' squad!
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.

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.
