Benoît Kounkoud called as reinforcements for the Blues
Yanis Lenne (left wrist) and Hugo Descat (right knee) are out of the 3rd and 4th qualifying rounds of the EHF Euro 2024. Consequently, the coach of the France team Guillaume Gille called Benoît Kounkoud as reinforcements for the international week which arrives against Poland on March 8 and 11.
The right winger from Kielce had prepared for the 2023 World Cup with the Blues before having to leave partners early January, due to a foot injury. With Nicolas Tournat and Dylan Nahi, also members of the Polish club, Benoît Kounkoud will join the French team directly this Monday in Gdansk.
The Blues will challenge the Poles on their land on Wednesday (6 p.m.) before receiving them in Aix-en-Provence on Saturday March 11 (9:10 p.m.). These two matches can be followed on the L’Équipe channel.
