For a long time, there was a popular perception that Pavard's France career was forever living off the credit accrued for that wonder-strike against Argentina in the 2018 World Cup. Those perceptions have changed somewhat, and now fall more in line with Didier Deschamps' view of the player. Benjamin Pavard had a tantrum of sorts at the 2022 World Cup, with Deschamps stating that the Inter defender "wasn't in the right frame of mind" to play, adding that Pavard was "not happy with the situation”. However, Pavard has never lost Deshcamps' favour, nor his trust. The major question this summer surrounds Pavard's positioning. "When I call him up for France, it is first and foremost as a right-back. If that changed, I would have to think because there are lots of centre-backs," Deschamps said in September 2023. However, Pavard's desire to play at centre-back has since become a reality and, having played in the middle in the most recent international break, he will be hoping to stay there.
