As the French XV prepares to face Namibia this Thursday evening at 9 p.m., at the Stade Vélodrome in Marseille, Victor Wembanyama gave his support to Fabien Galthié’s men. Focused on his new life in the United States, the number one from the last draft will make his NBA debut very soon. However, he does not forget where he comes from. Interviewed by 10sport, Wemby assures us that he hopes to be present behind his television to support his country in the World Cup final.
This Monday took place the preview screening of the documentary “ UN1QUE “, produced by Canal+ and which will be released on October 8, retracing the last year of Victor Wembanyamafrom his arrival to Mets 92 at the 2023 Draft. Downstream, the French prodigy was able to speak to the French press for the first time in many weeks and returned to many current subjects, notably the Rugby World Cup. A competition that he follows from afar due to the fact that he has moved away from the rest of the world.

Wembanyama meets with the XV of France
Very attached to its roots, Wemby admitted to supporting France, regardless of the sport or discipline in question. However, the current framework prevents the young superstar from being fully focused on what is happening around him: “ Even if I watch a bobsleigh competition tomorrow and there is France, I will be behind France! No matter the discipline, I always support France, especially if it’s a final and there’s a title at stake. » he conceded to the 10sport. « But in recent months, I have cut myself off from the world and not followed the news. I know there’s the Rugby World Cup, and if France is in the final, I’ll probably watch. »
Wemby prefers football to rugby
The appointment is made. Victor Wembanyama count on Antoine Dupont et al to make him turn on his television on October 28, three days after his first NBA game. On the other hand, the former player of Mets admitted to having a greater fondness for football than for other disciplines: “ Apart from football, there is not really a sport that I follow assiduously, but I have a good sporting culture of course » he blurted. Anyway, the XV of France is still far from the objective set by The animal. Heading now for the third group match, against Namibia, this Thursday evening.
