World Cup 2022: France – Official squad for the World Cup 2022: players, shirt numbers, coaches and supervisors

Reigning world champion France is also one of the big favorites for the title at the World Cup in Qatar. SPOX shows you the official squad of the Équipe Tricolore, the shirt numbers of the players as well as the coaching and support team.

On Sunday (November 20) the time has finally come when the 2022 World Cup will open in Qatar. As reigning world champions, you always have to reckon with the French national team when it comes to the World Cup title – despite a disappointing Nations League season in League A.

Before the tournament, the Équipe Tricolore was drawn into Group D, where the opponents are Australia, Denmark and Tunisia. Like most of the participants, the French have already announced their squad for the tournament in the Gulf state. After coach Didier Deschamps had initially only nominated 25 of the maximum 26 players allowed, the 26th place in the squad was given to a Bundesliga player today.

The following shows you SPOX the squad of the French national team at the World Cup in Qatar, but also the coaching and support team.

The Gladbach attacker Marcus Thuram gets the last ticket for the World Cup, as the French association announced today. He joins five French players in the squad who earn their living in the Bundesliga. These include Lucas Hernandez, Dayot Upamecano, Benjamin Pavard and Kingsley Coman (all FC Bayern Munich) as well as Christopher Nkunku from RB Leipzig.

The two midfield stars N’Golo Kanté and Paul Pogba are not included. In both cases, an injury thwarted the plans. With Kanté, it’s the rear thigh that causes problems, which is why he had to have an operation. The 31-year-old will still not be able to play months after the World Cup. Pogba is actually very similar. The Juve star also has to skip the World Cup due to thigh problems.

However, the French have also received good news: Ballon d’Or winner Karim Benzema is part of the squad and has been contesting a World Cup in the Bleus jersey since 2014.
