Theo Hernandez could get Euro 2020 chance

Milan left-back Theo Hernandez could receive a call-up from France for Euro 2020, according to the latest reports.

The 23-year-old has joint Spanish and French citizenship, but has always said he wants to play for Les Bleus and represented them at various youth levels.

He is yet to receive his senior cap for France and that might be about to change following a season at San Siro with eight goals and seven assists in 43 competitive matches.

Rabiot: 'I always try to give my best'

Adrien Rabiot said coach Andrea Pirlo sees that he tries ‘to do my best every time’, but admitted Juventus are going through a ‘complicated’ period.

The French midfielder is the only player from Serie A in Didier Deschamps squad for the World Cup qualifiers this month but France started the campaign with a 1-1 draw against Ukraine.

“We expected this type of game from Ukraine,” Rabio told the reporters, according to TMW. “It’s never easy to face a five-man defence, but we must know how to adapt to our opponents.

Nations League: Germany hit for six

Alvaro Morata opened the scoring in Spain’s historic 6-0 demolition of Germany, while Marko Rog saw red for Croatia in a 3-2 defeat to Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal.

The game of the night was undoubtedly in Seville, where Spain went head-to-head with Germany for the top of Group 4, and achieved it in quite extraordinary fashion.

Juventus striker Morata began the rout with a header at the back post, then saw yet another goal ruled offside, this one a decision that might’ve been overturned if VAR had been available.

West Ham favourites for Giroud

Inter, Roma, Lazio and Juventus face competition from West Ham, as it’s reported Olivier Giroud is threatening to leave Chelsea in January.

France coach Didier Deschamps advised him to find a new club where he can get more playing time ahead of the European Championship next summer.

It is a repeat of the situation from last season, but every time he seems to be on the verge of leaving, Giroud commits to Chelsea.

One of the reasons is that his family is so settled in London after many years with clubs based in the English Capital.

Deschamps: 'Rabiot improved at Juventus'

France coach Didier Deschamps credits Juventus with getting the best out of Adrien Rabiot. ‘When you are there, you do what they tell you to.’

Rabiot had famously been frozen out of the Bleus after he refused to be part of the reserves for the 2018 World Cup squad.

“He has grown so much. There were some complicated moments after PSG and it was a difficult start to his Juve career. I can’t say that he has been transformed, but he’s no longer the same player,” said Deschamps after France’s 1-0 win in Portugal.
