France coach Deschamps hails Spurs attacker Sissoko: A good soldier

France coach Didier Deschamps is full of praise for Tottenham midfielder Moussa Sissoko after calling him up yesterday.

The 28-year-old has started four of Spurs' seven Premier League games and scored his first goal for the club in Saturday's 4-0 win at Huddersfield.

His improved form has also earned Sissoko a return to the France squad after missing World Cup qualifiers against Netherlands and Luxembourg, with his France manager backing him to repay his trust.

Deschamps said: “Moussa is playing again – he is putting together a run of matches and he is playing well. He has experience and he had a really good Euros.

“He does not have a fixed position. He is a good soldier. When I use him, I know he is going to respond."
