Cabaye happy Newcastle pal Remy in France squad

Yohan Cabaye says Newcastle United teammate Loic Remy deserves his France recall.

Didier Deschamps has been unable to ignore the frontman's fantastic form for Newcastle and has selected him for a friendly against Australia on Friday and a vital qualifier against Finland next Tuesday.

"He's scored important goals - twice again (on Saturday) and he helped us to win the game so of course he deserves to be in the France squad," Cabaye told nufcTV.

"For me it's fantastic because I love to play forward and with him, it's so easy because he's quick.

"He can move very fast and very cleverly so it's very, very important for us. He gives us another way to play."
