France team midfielder Eduardo Camavinga left training on Wednesday at Clairefontaine, apparently suffering from knee pain after contact with teammate Ousmane Dembélé, AFP journalists noted on site.
The French team, already qualified for Euro-2024 in Germany, is preparing a meeting against Gibraltar on Saturday (8:45 p.m.) in Nice and a trip to Greece on Tuesday, as part of the qualifying group.
The meeting against the very modest Gibraltar is not completely without stakes, since the Blues need a victory to be assured of being seeded in the draw for the tournament.
The possible absence of Camavinga on Saturday, and the withdrawal of the other Real Madrid midfielder Aurélien Tchouaméni (fractured metatarsal), strengthens the chances of seeing the young Warren Zaire-Emery starting for the first time in the midfield. game, perhaps alongside Adrien Rabiot.
If he plays on Saturday, the Paris SG nugget will become at 17 years, eight months and 10 days the youngest French international since 1911. The record will still belong to Félix Vial, 17 years, two months and 15 days when he played against Luxembourg October 29, 1911 (4-1 victory). He died at age 20 during the First World War.
