Versatility of Man City's Nasri praised by France boss Deschamps

France national team manager Didier Deschamps has heaped praise on Manchester City's Samir Nasri.

The 26-year old has been called into Deschamps' Les Bleus ahead of the meeting with Belgium on Wednesday and indicated that he will be using his versatile playing style at the King Baudouin Stadium for the midweek friendly.

"His skills can be as useful to the French national team as they are to his team, Manchester City," said Deschamps.

"He's able to play from different positions. He's not exactly a midfielder. He can play on the right, on the left, or in the hole."

Nasri has not played for France for over a year but has been given a chance ahead of the 2013/14 Premier League season which kicks off this weekend.
