On Tuesday, the France national team enjoyed their first serious training of the international break, but it was quickly noticed that Aston Villa’s Boubacar Kamara wasn’t present.

The defensive midfielder has often been called up by Didier Deschamps without really getting played that often, but that hasn’t stopped him from hoping he can soon represent his country for the fourth time in his career.

However, whether the Aston Villa player does in the next game against Gibraltar will depend on how he recovers from a small physical setback, as explained by Le Parisien.

They explain that both Kamara and Jonathan Clauss weren’t present on the training pitch, because both received a ‘kick’ in their last games for their clubs, meaning a knock of some sort.

The pair were ‘preserved’ by the France national team staff, but any worries are quickly dispelled, as they claim that neither of their issues ‘inspires worries’ for the two games against Gibraltar and Greece.

Therefore, if the Aston Villa midfielder is going to play, he will get his chance.

It’s just entirely up to Didier Deschamps.
