If the Blues managed without him and if he watched his teammates on the television, Geoffrey Kondogbia hopes to bounce back. On the verge of the 2016-2017 season, the 23-year old player is out for his revenge. “This season, my aim is to play well in all matches, and to do so on a regular basis in order to be able to return to the national team, he stated on 14 July in an article in the La Gazette del Sport, to whom he asked if he could reply in French in order to better express his ideas. I think a lot about the World Cup 2018 and I want to be there. And in order to do that, I will have to play at the highest level all year with Inter. »
The 21st World Cup will take place in Russia from 14 June to 15 July 2018. The qualification matches will start in September 2016.
