It is this Thursday against Mexico that the France team starts its Olympic Games in Tokyo. In addition to the symbolism of the tournament, it is a special meeting for two tricolors in particular: Florian Thauvin and especially André-Pierre Gignac. The two players play at the Tigres de Monterrey, one of the big clubs in Mexico. APG has been playing there since 2015, while his former teammate will take his first steps there in the coming weeks. The French team convened by Sylvain Ripoll is a mix of experienced players and young talents. Olympic teams must be made up of players born on or after January 1, 1997, with the exception of 3 of them. The French coach then called on André-Pierre Gignac, Florian Thauvin and Téji Savanier, player from Montpellier. The young blues are talented and already have the highest level of experience: Lucas Tousart, Pierre Kalulu, Enzo Le Fée, Randal Kolo Muani and Nathanaël Mbuku are for example part of this list. Mexico – France takes place this Thursday, July 21 at 10 a.m., and this meeting is co-broadcast by France 2 (unencrypted) and Eurosport (on subscription).
