France names Rabiot in their World Cup squad

France named Adrien Rabiot in their squad for the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qatar after he missed the 2018 edition.

The midfielder has been in great form with Juve this season after adding goals to his game at the club.

The Bianconeri will be represented by a number of players in the competition, but France have a number of top midfielders, meaning the manager has a lot of work to do to select his preferred option.

However, Rabiot’s form at Juve proved too good to ignore and Les Bleus manager Didier Deschamps named him in his squad for the competition, according to Football Italia.

Juve FC says

Rabiot has been one of our fittest players this season and it doesn’t make much sense for France to keep him at home.

The absence of N’Golo Kante and Paul Pogba through injury meant he was almost certain to be on the plane for the competition.

They now hope he can translate their form from club football onto the international stage and help them retain the trophy they won four years ago.

Rabiot now has 29 caps for his country and has been involved in international football since U16 level.

He will want to help win this competition for his country again and we hope he is in good form.
