The day that Camavinga had been dreaming of for years arrived. Deschamps prostrated himself before the TF1 cameras, looked at the presenter and while the queues were broadcast, he said his name: “ Eduardo Camavinga ” . Point and end. In his house she must have cried out in relief, letting go of all the tension accumulated in months of restlessness. Knowing that his performance had dropped compared to last season and dragged the feeling, bitter like few others, of throwing overboard what was harvested during 2021-22. To think that he was going to take its toll on her. But Deschamps proved to have a memory… and a lot of confidence in him, since he only has 99 minutes with the senior team (three official matches; none in full).But Camavinga is no longer only future, also present. A World Cup player. Everything happens in a context of casualties: Kanté and Pogba have known for weeks that they were not going to be in Qatar . The Chelsea midfielder suffered a spectacular hamstring injury: after assuming that there was no way to get there, he agreed to undergo surgery and will be out for four months . As for the Juventus midfielder , his situation is more controversial. First and most importantly, because he has a meniscus injury that has kept him in the dry dock since April 19, when he played his last official match (204 days ago). And second, due to the soaking of the ‘ Pogba-Gate ‘ , the great scandal of Les Bleusin recent months: allegedly, he hired a witch doctor to injure Mbappé.
Without them, three possible names emerged to reinforce the midfield: Guendouzi, Camavinga and Veretout. Of them, a priori, two were going to go. Finally, the three; therefore , the madridista is summoned . Deschamps made him debut with the senior team on September 8, 2020, making him the youngest player to debut with the French team in this century (17 years, 9 months and 29 days) and the youngest since 1945 , surpassing Maryan Wisniewski, who did it with 18 years and 2 days (it was the year 1995).
