Consultation: which goalkeepers for the Blues after the international retirements of Lloris and Mandanda?
A new era will begin this Thursday, when the list of the Blues for the first qualifying matches for Euro 2024 is announced, against the Netherlands on March 24 (8:45 p.m.) at the Stade de France, then the Republic of Ireland, on the 27th (8:45 p.m.), in Dublin.
Didier Deschamps will reveal the identity of the new goalkeepers of the Blues, after the retirements of the two monuments Hugo Lloris (145 selections, record) and Steve Mandanda (35 selections), of all the fights, or almost for 15 years.
We have identified a dozen goalkeepers likely to ensure this difficult succession or to integrate the selection as number 2 or number 3. The Milanese Mike Maignan, of course, but also Alphonse Areola (West Ham), Brice Samba (Lens) and Alban Lafont (Nantes), other evidence. Without forgetting Illan Meslier (Leeds) and Lucas Chevalier (Lille), even Benjamin Lecomte (Montpellier), Benoît Costil (Lille) or Jean Butez (Antwerp), the goalkeeper that Mark van Bommel wants to see with the Blues.
