French national team coach Didier Deschamps has warned Paul Pogba that he could miss the World Cup if he is not fully fit. Didier stated that it was “inconceivable” that he would take Pogba half-decent to the tournament.

Pogba has not played a single match for Juventus this season after returning to the club on a free transfer from Manchester United. Pogba tore a meniscus in his right knee in July during pre-season training with the Italian club. After collapsing back into training, he made the decision to work in early September. An eight-week recovery period leaves his participation in Qatar in the balance.
The shape of the players can greatly affect the World Cup tournament, especially with the match played in the middle of the season. This creates additional pressure on the players as they will have very little preparation time this year. This means that it is unwise to gamble on the fitness of any player.

France are the 250 favorites to win Group D with Caesars Sportsbook. While Australians +1200 top the group. Socceroos is a stable side with over 30 years forming the backbone of the team, with 30-year-old captain Matthew Ryan in goal, Trent Sainsbury, Aziz Bahish and Billy Wright in defence, Celtic’s Aaron Mooy in midfield, and Melbourne City striker Matthew Leakey is up front.

Any sign of preferential treatment for Pogba could pose a threat to the team’s unity in Qatar.
