Alban Lafont, the captain of FC Nantes, will play the final of the Coupe de France against Nice

As announced last night by the site of West France, Antoine Kombouaré put an end, yesterday in front of his group, to the main suspense concerning his team composition against Nice, Saturday in the final of the Coupe de France. It is Alban Lafont, the captain of FC Nantes, who will officiate in the goal at the Stade de France.

Rémy Descamps, goalkeeper No. 2, had completed the entire course of FC Nantes since the 32nd round, including this semi-final won on penalties against AS Monaco (2-2, 4-2 tabs), the only game in which he did not keep a clean sheet. He had been decisive in the penalty shootout but had been moderately reassuring during the match.

In the list of five nominees for the title of best goalkeeper in Ligue 1

“You will see, I will decide at the last moment, announced Antoine Kombouaré to the media on Monday, before adding: It shouldn’t be uncomfortable for my keepers. Otherwise, it’s annoying, especially for my group. » In recent hours, he had felt that the question of the goalkeeper could disrupt the preparation for the meeting, as the level displayed this season by Alban Lafont (23 years old) is impressive.

It is therefore him, and not Ludovic Blas, captain until then in the Coupe de France in the absence of the holder of the armband, who will seek the trophy in the stands in the event of victory for the FCN, 22 years after Mickaël Landreau.
