Cabaye: Southampton midfielder Schneiderlin deserves France start

PSG midfielder Yohan Cabaye says Southampton youngster Morgan Schneiderlin deserves his France spot.

Schneiderlin is set to start against World Cup opponents Ecuador today.

"This is a very good player already. What he's done in the Premier League, this is not trivial, he has a lot of quality," said Cabaye.

"He is a technical player who keeps the ball well, he also scores goals. He is capable of playing as a box-to-box midfielder. He's shown many qualities since the beginning of our preparation in Clairefontaine. He is ready."
