Author of 45 goals in the last two Ligue 1 seasons, during which he only missed two small matches, Wissam Ben Yedder is one of the most successful strikers in the French Championship. Not called by Didier Deschamps, the coach of the France team, during the last gathering, can the AS Monaco player still hope to be part of the adventure in Qatar at the end of the year? The person concerned, he believes in it hard as iron.
Complicated start to the season for Ben Yedder
Perhaps still marked by his new elimination at the play-off stage in the Champions League, Monaco had a hard time finding the right fuel at the start of the season. Admittedly, there was this consistent draw on the lawn of Paris Saint-Germain at the end of August. This narrow success on the side of Strasbourg. But at the same time, the Rocher club lost heavily twice at home, against Lens and Troyes. As a symbol, his captain Wissam Ben Yedder, so prolific a few weeks earlier, failed to find the target.
A missed start to the season which paid cash in selection. Despite the many absences, coach Didier Deschamps is a favorite of players like Olivier Giroud and Randal Kolo Muani. “He is going through a period that is not the best for him. He was called regularly with us. The situation is special there too, it does not prevent me from seeing other players too. These are not players who are used to coming”, had notably explained DD concerning Ben Yedder. Fortunately for the attacker, nothing is fixed, far from it.
The recent performances that change everything?
Because after a laborious month of August (2 draws, 2 defeats), Monaco is doing much better. In September, Philippe Clément’s men achieved a full box with 9 points taken out of 9 possible. They even increased their series to 4 wins last weekend against Nantes. Wissam Ben Yedder, already a scorer in Reims, did more than repeat against the Canaries, offering himself a triple. ASM returned to the Top 5 and seems to have launched its season. Like the 32-year-old?
I never gave up, I continue to give my all. Everyone dreams of this World Cup and this list.

At the end of this XXL performance in front of Nantes, Wissam Ben Yedder did not fail to send a short message to Didier Deschamps. ” This triple is a joy, but we work, too. And we continue to work a lot because everyone dreams of this World Cup. There are complicated periods yes, but you have to work twice, even three times more. I found the efficiency at the right time, but we must continue. We’ll see at the end“, explained the native of Sarcelles. Who knows this World would probably be the one and only of his career. The man with 19 selections for the France team (3 goals) had been called up for the last Euro, without playing a single minute. This time is the right one?
