The contract of 54-year-old Deschamps expired after the World Cup last December. France lost the final in Qatar on penalties against Argentina. Then he announced at the beginning of this year that he would tie the knot about a longer stay or not. Federal president Noël le Graët indicated that the ball would lie in Deschamps’ camp.

The former defensive midfielder started working as France national coach in July 2012 and guided Les Bleus to the world title at the World Cup in Russia in 2018, after a victory in the semi-finals against the Red Devils. The French also won the Final Four of the Nations League in 2020/21 under his reign, after also beating Belgium in the semi-final here.

In addition to the recently lost World Cup final in Qatar, France also lost to Portugal at the 2016 European Championship, in their own country, in the final battle.
