​Man City fullback Mendy recalled to France squad

Manchester City fullback Benjamin Mendy has earned a call up to the France squad.

The 25-year-old has been missing from the national team for the better part of a year, as he dealt with significant injury issues.

Mendy has played eight games for City in all competitions this season, with Pep Guardiola easing him back into the team.

He was in the starting line-up for the 1-1 draw with Atalanta yesterday.

Now he will get a chance to show he is back to his best with France, as he is part of the group selected by Didier Deschamps.

France face two key Euro 2020 qualifiers, as they come up against Moldova before traveling to Albania a few days later.
