Qatar 2022: Why is Paul Pogba not playing for France vs. Argentina?


Even though France will play for the ultimate glory, superstar midfielder Paul Pogba is nowhere to be found on the pitch. Here, we reveal why’s that.

There is no denying that the French national team is brimming with talent. They have a combination of youth and veterans and that is one of the main reasons why they have reached the finals of the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

This also means that even if their current squad is great, a player can be dropped from the starting XI at any moment, which is why some people were not surprised to see Paul Pogba elsewhere than on the pitch.

Now that the trophy is on the line when they face Argentina, one wonders why he doesn’t start for Didier Deschamps’ side ahead of this incredible must-win game. I mean, he’s always been one of its stars.

Qatar 2022: Why Isn’t Paul Pogba Playing Vs Argentina?

As much as Didier Deschamps would’ve loved to have Pogba on the pitch, the French midfielder hasn’t played a single minute in the FIFA World Cup. In fact, he wasn’t even called up, although it wasn’t because of him.

Just like his colleague N’Golo Kanté, Paul Pogba suffered a major injury shortly before the competition. Thus, he’s not eligible to represent his national team in this game, although he’ll be rooting from the sidelines, for sure.
