Deschamps' Koulibaly gaffe

France manager Didier Deschamps said he’ll consider calling up Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly – who is a Senegal international.

The gaffe was committed during an interview with Canal+ today.

“There is a lot of competition for places, for example Mathieu of Barcelona, Koulibaly at Napoli.”

While Koulibaly was born in France and played for Les Bleus at Under-20 level, he opted to play his international football for Senegal.

As K2 already has five caps under his belt for Senegal, he is no longer eligible for France.
