Newcastle Four Named For Ukraine Challenge

8 years ago

Didier Deschamps has now named the players who will decide if France are involved next summer in Brazil.

France travel to the Ukraine to play a week on Friday (15th November) before the return leg of the play-off on Tuesday 19th November.

The French Coach has named four Tyneside based players in his squad with Yohan Cabaye, Mathieu Debuchy, Moussa Sissoko and Loic Remy all selected for these make or break matches.

As a Newcastle fan you can only assume that a positive outcome for the French team would be by far the best result.

Failure against Ukraine would seem sure to be a negative on our World Cup hopefuls and what the fallout from that would be in terms of how they would see their club football is anybody’s guess.

On the other hand a buoyant French core of our team could do wonders for the mood of those in black and white.

Here is hoping for the right result.
