France coach Didier Deschamps insists he's not freezing out Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri.

Nasri hasn't featured since the blow-up at the Euros in the summer.

"Look, he makes the pre-selection everytime," argued Deschamps. "After that, the same thing always happens.

"When I make the squad list, I know he will tell me he can't make it (because of injury). After a while you get tired. But I'm not ignoring him."
