On fire with Crystal Palace, can Michael Olise be the surprise guest on Deschamps’ list for the Euro?

Scorer again this Saturday with the Eagles in the Premier League, French winger Michael Olise ends the season with a cannonball. From there to hope, next Thursday, a nice surprise by being part of Didier Deschamps’ list to participate in the Euro with the Blues?

His double last week against Manchester United (4-0) with Crystal Palace shed some light on him. This Saturday in Wolverhampton (1-3), Michael Olise confirmed his recent (good) performances in the Premier League by shining again with a nice goal from the left on a wrapped shot at the edge of the area. A new achievement – his 10th of the season in 18 matches – which perhaps comes at the best time for the French Espoirs international (seven caps).

The 22-year-old right winger, away from the field for a large part of 2023 after an ischio injury during the Under-21 Euro and absent for two months in 2024, between February and April, for the same injury, seems to be getting back into shape at the best of times.

Never summoned with the Blues, can Olise be Deschamps’ surprise?

If his coaches at Crystal Palace, Roy Hodgson then Oliver Glasner, would have gladly wanted to take advantage of their “Frenchy” a little more during this 2023-2024 exercise, it could be that Didier Deschamps will give him his chance with a view to the Euro this summer (June 14 to July 14). According to our information, the Blues staff are keeping a close eye on the left-hander’s performances. If he has so far never been summoned by the coach to play with the Blues, seeing Olise join the “DD” list before the European competition is not impossible. Especially since this list could, if necessary, be expanded to 26 players compared to 23 traditionally.

In his sector of play, the Palace player is in particular competition with Moussa Diaby, who for his part is experiencing a slightly more delicate end to the season with Aston Villa, eliminated in the semi-finals of the Europa Conference League by Olympiacos and which remains on a series of four defeats in the last six matches in all competitions (with a draw and a victory).

The London native dreams of living an adventure like the Euro with the A’s. It remains to be seen whether next Thursday at 8 p.m., his dream will come true.
