France Announce Latest Squad, 10 Stars Snubbed

France manager Didier Deschamps has announced his squad for the upcoming international break, but once again snubbed several superstars, including players from FC Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Scroll through the gallery above to see some players who were snubbed from Les Bleus' latest squad!

The 2018 FIFA World Cup winners have an abundance of top talent available right now, leaving Deschamps with a selection headache ahead of every international break.

In the upcoming break, France will face Finland in a friendly before clashing with 2016 UEFA European Championship winners Portugal and Sweden in the UEFA Nations League.

France are unbeaten in their past 12 international games, winning 10 of those matches and drawing two.

Deschamps has called up Kylian Mbappe even though he missed his side's UEFA Champions League game with RB Leipzig this week due to injury.

Marcus Thuram received a maiden call-up to follow in the footsteps of his famous father Lilian, who won the 1998 FIFA World Cup with Les Bleus.

However, Eduardo Camavinga, who became France's youngest goalscorer since 1914 in September, was not called up following his recent injury.
