After an almost flawless qualifying campaign (7 wins, 1 draw), the French team will soon find out its three opponents in the group phase of Euro 2024, scheduled from June 14 to July 14 in Germany. The draw takes place this Saturday (6pm) in Hamburg. Didier Deschamps will not be taking part in the ceremony.

In a press release published on Friday, the French Football Federation indicated that the coach would not be travelling to Germany. The reason for this? The 98 world champion is suffering from back pain and hashamps.

He added: I’ll obviously be watching the draw very closely on television. This draw is an important moment for all the teams who qualify. Once we know our group, we can validate our choice of base camp and begin to study the game of our future opponents in detail, even if we know them all well overall. His assistant Guy St├ęphan, on the other hand, will be present in Hamburg.
