France team 2018

French coach Didier Deschamps has announced the squad for the 2018 World Cup qualifier in Europe, with Monaco striker Kellian Mbabi being recalled while Borussia Dortmund midfielder Osman Dembelli is ruled out.

Coach Didier Deschamps has called for striker Kilian Mbabi to join France and Luxemburg in qualifying for the 2018 World Cup, while Borussia Dortmund midfielder Osman Dembele has been ruled out.

Mbabi's call to the squad, which will take place on the 31st of this month on Stade de France, and Luxembourg on the third of next month on the municipal stadium in Toulouse in the first group, despite being excluded from his side Monaco at the beginning of the season because of Paris SG to contract him.

Dempsey also misses Dortmund, who has been ruled out for lack of practice, wanting to move to Barcelona.

Although the situation of the players is similar in both teams, Deschan did not exclude Mbabi. You cannot imagine calling an inactive player for 15 days, "he said at a press conference from the team's headquarters in Clarefontaine.

"For Kilian, there's a lot of hype around him, even if he has not played in the last two games with Monaco, but he's training."

At the start of the season with Lyon, Nabil Faqir returned to the Deschamps, as Bayern Munich midfielder Kensley Koman has done. Marseille midfielder Dimitri Piet has been absent for "physical" reasons, Deschamps said, "because he missed three weeks" because of injury.

France are second in Group A after 6 rounds, but with the same number of points as Sweden. While the Netherlands are third, two points behind, and qualify for the finals of the nine group champions, with the best eight teams in second place as a link to qualify for four additional teams.

Here's the lineup:

Goalkeepers: Alphonse Ariola (Paris SG), Steve Mandanda (Marseille), Hugo Lauris (Tottenham Hotspur)

Defenders: Lucas Dini, Samuel Omtiti (Barcelona), Christophe Gallet (Nice), Breslene Kempembe, Levan Kurzauza (Paris Saint-Germain), Laurent Coxelini (Arsenal), Djibril Sidibe (Monaco)

Midfielders: Nigolo Cantet (Chelsea), Blaz Matudei (Juventus), Adrian Rabio (Paris Saint Germain), Paul Bugba (Manchester United), Thomas Limar (Monaco), Corinthian Toliso (Bayern Munich)
