Sakho starts above Arsenal man once again…
SEE ALSO: Liverpool’s worst ever signings!
As he does done for the entirety of the tournament when fit, Mamadou Sakho will start over Laurent Koscielny for France today against Germany, to the delight of many Liverpool fans, and the dismay of Arsenal supporters online.
Sakho struggled at Liverpool last term, while Koscielny was widely regarded as one of the best centre-backs in the country, but clearly France boss Didier Deschamps doesn’t care too much about last year’s form.
To be fair, Sakho’s been excellent in Brazil so far.
Here’s how the two sets of supporters reacted on Twitter…
@Joeisone Kos is better than Sakho, yes, but Sakho is stronger which is why I think he’s there, but let’s see how it goes.

Koscielny is a much better CB than Sakho. I just don’t understand some stuff.

I hope everyone who’s just bigged up Sakho and mocked Koscielny realises that because of doing that, Sakho will be awful today
