Football World Cup: Injured, Guadeloupean Nkunku ruled out

With 5 days to go before the start of the 2022 World Cup, injuries strike one after the other within the Blues. On Tuesday evening, it was Guadeloupean Christopher Nkunku who paid the price for this black series by injuring himself in training. The raider is seized.


Christopher Nkunku is deprived of the Mondial. The Guadeloupe striker was ruled out at the end of a training session at the center in Clairefontaine with a left leg injury. It was yesterday, Tuesday 15 November, the day before the Blues’ departure for Qatar.

Shortly after the incident, Christopher Nkunku left the field limping and grimacing during contact with Eduardo Camavinga. The French Football Federation (FFF) announced last evening that the top scorer in the Bundesliga is suffering from a sprained left knee.

Radiological examination carried out in the evening unfortunately revealed that it was a sprain

His selection by Didier Deschamps was logical, given his 16 goals scored in 21 games in all competitions. So far, the ex-Paris, who was crowned best player in the German championship last season, has been in excellent form.

Christopher Nkunku, who turned 25 on Monday, was one of three Guadeloupeans selected for the 2022 World Cup alongside Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman and Borussia Mönchengladbach striker Marcus Thuram.

In his place, 23-year-old Frankfurt striker Randal Kolo Muani was called up to join the Blues on Wednesday.

Currently with his club in Japan, Randle Kolo Muani will join the French team in Doha on Thursday morning

The process of injury of the players of the French football team continues. We can even talk about carnage, because before Nkunku, the current world champion had already mourned the participation of Paul Pogba, N’Golo Kante, Mike Megnon in this high mass of the goal ball. Another package: On Monday, Presnell Kimpembe suffered an Achilles tendon injury.

There is uncertainty about the form of Karim Benzema and Raphael Varane, who are returning from injuries.

Anyway, should all the selected be fit, the Blues’ entry date is November 22, against Australia in Qatar.
