France manager Didier Deschamps has named his final 23-man squad for the 2016 European Championships.

The Les Bleus boss was forced to make some late changes to his roster following injuries to key defenders Raphael Varane and Jeremy Mathieu, who have now been replaced by Samuel Umtiti and Adil Rami

Manchester United's Morgan Schneiderlin was also a late inclusion following a knee injury to Marseille's Lassana Diarra.

Premier League stars Dimitri Payet, Olivier Giroud, Anthony Martial, N'Golo Kante, Hugo Lloris, Laurent Koscielny, Bacary Sagna, Eliaquim Mangala, Yohan Cabaye and the relegated Moussa Sissoko were all included, joining Juventus ace Paul Pogba, Paris Saint-Germain's Blaise Matuidi and Atletico Madrid's Antoine Griezmann.
