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."
