It’s a pain that still lingers. Not selected for the French national team since November 2017 and a draw against Germany in a friendly (2-2), during which he scored a brace, Alexandre Lacazette thought he had scored big points with a view to being selected by Didier Deschamps for the 2018 World Cup.

I think that at this point in my career, I’m an assertive player who can handle big, high-pressure matches, but 2018 hurts more. Did I feel banished? Absolutely. I was a reserve at the 2014 World Cup, at Euro 2016, at the 2018 World Cup, or every time, there are other players who go ahead of me, you say to yourself good, you don’t need to hope anymore.
