I reject your reality, I substitute my own !!
Where did you see ACL? Isn't it hamstring?I'm hearing Kounde had an ACL. Seems it's now a straight battle between him and Konate for that final world cup slot. But if we're being honest, it's not even a contest. Saliba is clear. But like always, The Deschamps factor is always there.
Konate hasn't played for Liverpool this season. Saliba has started all EPL games for Arsenal this season. Now he was the first to come in and got a clean sheet.
Have hard time seeing Deschamps choosing Konate over him at this point, but you never know with these NT managers, when you have the recent example of White being left out for Coady.
