Selector got involved in an argument with the Bayern side, which is out of the count for the eighths. Pavard started France’s first game against Australia and remained on the bench against Denmark and Tunisia.
In the France selection, the atmosphere between coach Didier Deschamps and defender Pavard is not the best. According to the television channel “RMC Sport” the two had a tense exchange of words after the opening game against Australia, in which Pavard’s performance was far from desirable. Incidentally, the French coach confirmed days later that the defender “is not in a good mood”.
In that sense, Pavard was scheduled to play for the match against Tunisia, but ended up being passed over by Disasi, who is a center back from scratch and had even been called up at the last minute for this World Cup to make up for a casualty due to injury.
According to the cited body, the bad disposition of the lateral has to do with the fact that he does not feel comfortable playing on the right of defense, as usually happens in the national team.
France plays Poland on Sunday for the round of 16 and Pavard is far from being part of the accounts for that duel. Whoever wins then plays with the winner of England-Senegal.
