France coach Didier Deschamps is delighted with the form of Newcastle United midfielder Yohan Cabaye.

Cabaye impressed in his latest run-out for his country - a 6-0 mauling of Australia on Friday - and France coach Didier Deschamps is delighted to see the 27-year-old focused on football again.

He said: "He got slightly lost during the summer period.

"But I am not just discovering that Yohan is a very good player with a lot of influence. He has always been important with his technical qualities. I am fortunate to have some very good players in that position."
