Sidibé drafted into France squad

Monday, 7 October, 2019 7comments  |  Jump to last

Djibril Sidibé has been recalled to the French national side after Leo Dubois was forced to withdraw through injury.

The fullback, who made his Premier League debut for Everton as a substitute at Burnley on Saturday following Seamus Coleman's dismissal for two bookable offences, was a member of the France squad that won the World Cup in Russia in 2018 but has not been included in recent months.

He will join his Goodison team-mate, Lucas Digne, with the French squad over the international break.

Sidibé was signed on loan by the Blues from AS Monaco this past summer after Jonjoe Kenny was allowed to join Schalke in the German Bundesliga, also on a season-long loan.

Everton reportedly have an option to purchase Sidibé for €14m next summer if his loan spell at Goodison Park is a productive one.

To date, the 27-year-old Troyes-born player has made two starts for the Blues, both in the League Cup, against Lincoln City in the second round and Sheffield Wednesday in the third round.

Funny old game football.

France are the World Champions… We have a right-back and a left-back in their squad. England made the final four of the World Cup and the League of Nations. We have their starting goalie and centre-back. Yerry Mina was one of the players of the World Cup.

Put them all together, along with the Captain of Ireland, and what do you get? A pile of shit.

Don't forget to add a pinch of salt, Kieran.

He's playing in the next game in any case. As a part of our 4-2-3-1.

Kieran - perhaps it's just a badly managed and under motivates pile of shit?

Silva will probably play Holgate instead.

Hope he doesn't get an injury with Seamus being out for a while, strange is it not that he gets a call up for the French International squad but until Seamus was red-carded never got a look in, apart from the Carabou.

Whereas Schneiderlin who is NOT in the squad, gets picked every game in which we have lost. People saying Silva needs more time, yes in Walton Jail.

Sidibe should be getting used more often now, the West Ham game with Coleman's suspension a perfect time to start giving him a run of games.

Whilst Coleman is club captain, he's not the same player that he was between 2010-2016, he was undroppable, now let's be brutally honest, he is not.
