Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri is determined to grab his chance with France.

Nasri is now back in the fold for the two friendlies against Uruguay and Brazil after a year’s absence and is keen to make an impact.

"Firstly, I am very happy to be back in blue. This is something very important for me to play with the team of France," Nasri told L’Equipe.

"When I heard the news, I was very happy. I have received messages of encouragement from my team-mates, including Franck Ribery and Mathieu Valbuena, it warmed my heart.

"I come into the squad with the desire to show that I can help this team and I’m not, how some people think, the idiot that makes a mess in the group."
