Euro 2020 qualifiers: Kante returns to France squad as Pogba misses out

France head coach Didier Deschamps has named his squad for the upcoming Euro 202 qualifiers against Iceland and Turkey. 

Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante and Kylian Mbappe have both made a return to the national team while Paul Pogba has been left out. Manchester United has been struggling with a foot problem and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer didn't include the player in club's squad to play in the Europa League on Thursday. 

Tottenham Hotspur's Tanguy Ndombele makes his comeback as Arsenal's Matteo Guendouzi drops down to the under-21 squad, and there is a recall for back-up goalkeeper Steve Mandanda of Marseille.

The World Cup holders face Iceland in Reykjavik on Friday, October 11 before entertaining Turkey at the Stade de France on Monday, October 14.

Deschamps men are level atop Group H with Turkey on 15 points from six games, with Iceland three points back and the top two qualifying for the final tournament.
