Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny is eager to build on his performance for France in their friendly win over USA.

Koscielny contributed to a clean sheet and a 1-0 win at the Stade de France and now he wants more.

"I am very happy," he told Arsenal Player. "I waited for this for a little while and now I have it. I am happy because it is a big achievement for me. I have worked a lot with my club and with the national team, so now I want to continue to play with France.

"It was my first cap so I was a little stressed. For the game I played alright with my partner Adil Rami. We talked a lot and we defended very well. We kept a clean sheet and for a defender that's the first thing you want."
