Didier Deschamps knows full well that the participation of Paul Pogba (29 years old, 91 selections) in the World Cup is very compromised. His midfield had external meniscus surgery early September and he shouldn't be back on the pitch for six weeks, while the competition in Qatar will start in just over two months. In an interview with the show Telefoot and broadcast this Sunday morning, the coach of the Blues maintained hope while setting his conditions. “I know Paul well, he will do everything to recover as quickly as possible and be with us in November. But the timing is short and he will come provided he is fit and in competitive mode,” he warned.
