On Thursday, Didier Deschamps announced his 23-man squad for Les Bleus' matches against Albania and Andorra. The biggest surprise is the inclusion of defender Aymeric Laporte, who has been famously excluded throughout Deschamps' seven-year tenure as national team coach.
The Manchester City star is joined in the squad by fellow Premier League players Hugo Lloris, Kurt Zouma, Lucas Digne, Tanguy Ndombele, Moussa Sissoko and Olivier Giroud, although there was no place for Alexander Lacazette and Anthony Martial.
The Lille pairing of Mike Maignan and Jonathan Ikone are the only uncapped players in the squad, while Kylian Mbappe and N'Golo Kante miss out through injury, as do Benjamin Mendy and FC Barcelona forward Ousmane Dembele.
Here is France's latest squad in full, as revealed by Les Bleus' official Twitter account:
Goalkeepers: Alphonse Areola (Paris Saint-Germain), Hugo Lloris (Tottenham Hotspur), Mike Maignan (Lille)
Defenders: Lucas Digne (Everton), Aymeric Laporte (Manchester City), Raphael Varane (Real Madrid), Leo Dubois (Olympique Lyonnais), Clement Lenglet (FC Barcelona), Kurt Zouma (Chelsea), Lucas Hernandez (Bayern Munich), Benjamin Pavard (Bayern Munich)
Midfielders: Blaise Matuidi (Juventus), Steven N'Zonzi (Galatasaray), Moussa Sissoko (Tottenham Hotspur), Corentin Tolisso (Bayern Munich), Paul Pogba (Manchester United)
Attackers: Wissam Ben Yedder (AS Monaco), Kingsley Coman (Bayern Munich), Nabil Fekir (Real Betis), Olivier Giroud (Chelsea), Antoine Griezmann (FC Barcelona), Jonathan Ikone (Lille), Thomas Lemar (Atletico Madrid)
