Latest Football News – Injured in the right knee with Manchester City, the defender Aymeric Laporte is forfeited for the gathering of the Blues and leaves his place to Samuel Umtiti for the matches against Albania and Andorra in qualifying for Euro 2020, announced the FFF.
Mauivais timing for Aymeric Laporte. The Manchester City defender, who has been waiting since March 2017 to be re-called to the French team and has never played a single minute in Blue, injured his right knee this Saturday and left the pitch at the 34th minute on a stretcher. He will not be able to enjoy his first selection against Albania and Andorra in qualifying for Euro 2020. Laporte is replaced in the group by Samuel Umtiti, initially shunned by Didier Deschamps because of a reduced playing time in Barcelona then drafted this Saturday.
But it now seems obvious that the former Lyonnais will approach the double appointment in the unusual skin for him of lining. It is logical Clément Lenglet who should have the confidence of Didier Deschamps in the starting lineup.
