Kante, Lacazette miss out on French squad as Kurt Zouma, Laporte earn call-ups 

France manager Didier Deschamps has named his squad that will represent the country in the Euro 2020 qualifier matches against Albania and Andorra. 

The World Cup winner has given Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte his first senior callup, having featured extensively in the younger teams, notably Under-17 and the Under-21.

There are six players from the Premier League, with Paul Pogba, Olivier Giroud, and Mousa Sissoko also in the team. 

There was no place for Chelsea's N'Golo Kante in the team, with the diminutive midfielder having fitness issues in recent weeks. 

Arsenal's Alexandre Lacazette is perhaps the surprise omission from Deschamps'  squad, with the Frenchman preferring the likes of Lemar, Griezmann and Ikone upfront. 

Here is the full squad;

 

 

France will play Albania on Saturday the 7th of September and then Andorra on Tuesday the 10th and will hope to continue to top their group, having amassed nine points from their first four matches.
