The French XV will have a makeover during its summer tour in South America. Les Bleus will face Argentina twice and Uruguay once this summer and Fabien Galthié has decided to call up many new players. He has rested the Top 14 semi-finalists and finalists but also the premium players in order to give them a breather after a huge season and the 2023 World Cup. As a result, many new faces are present in the French XV and one of them is Théo Attissogbe, a winger from Section Paloise who has shone this season.

Attissogbe is excited about the tour

The young player seems to be excited about this summer tour, and he spoke to Sud Ouest about this new adventure.This tour had become a goal. It’s certainly cool to have heard my name come out of the coach’s mouth. Going there once (in January, and as a training partner, Editor’s note), honestly made me want to go again. That first involved good performances with the Section. That’s what I set out to do.“, first confided the Pau winger, before clearly announcing his objectives for this tour, declaring: “It’s a tour that I hope to participate in fully, by playing matches, and good ones. It’s clear and simple: I’m going there with the ambition to play, to perform. I expect a lot from this first one.“It goes without saying that he will want to make a strong impression on Fabien Galthié and that is a good sign for the French coach.

To sum up

The French XV will be getting a makeover during their summer tour of South America. Les Bleus will face Argentina twice and Uruguay once this summer and Fabien Galthié has decided to call up a number of new players.
