Todibo joins up with Les Bleus!
It's thoroughly deserved... Jean-Clair Todibo will join up with the France senior team for the first time in the upcoming international break. Le Gym's centre back has been called up to the squad by Didier Deschamps after the injuries to William Saliba and Wesley Fofana.
Having shone again on Sunday against Lorient, in an encounter that Le Gym should have won but finished by not losing (1-1), Jean-Clair Todibo has just been called up to the France senior team. He will make the trip with his friend Khephren Thuram, who has also been selected for the squad for the two Euro 2024 qualifiers, against the Netherlands (on 24 March in Paris) and Ireland (27 in Dublin).
This call-up, which is just the start of the story, serves as a reward for the effort and consistency shown by the centre-back, who has now played 93 matchs for Les Aiglons and who wore the captain's armband against Sheriff Tiraspol in the absence of Dante.
The whole of the club congratulate him on this momentous occasion!
