France squad named: Martial returns; Lacazette & Laporte omitted

Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette and Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte have been omitted from France's squad for the upcoming Euro2020 qualifiers.

Despite scoring 14 goals this season, Lacazette was left out in favour of Olivier Giroud and Wissam Ben Yedder.

Hugo Lloris, Lucas Digne, Kurt Zouma, Paul Pogba, N'Golo Kante, Moussa Sissoko and Anthony Martial are the remaining Premier League stars named in the final squad.

Laporte is another notable absentee given his starring role for City this season. Les Bleus boss Didier Deschamps has questioned the centre-back's personality in the past.
