Valencia midfielder Francis Coquelin hoping for France call

Valencia midfielder Francis Coquelin says he isn't obsessing over a call-up to the France squad.

The former Arsenal ace has represented France at all underage levels, but is yet to earn a senior cap.

He told Super Deporte: “I am very focused on Valencia. In the end, what allows you to be part of the national team is what you do every day with your club. It is true that there are many players in my position and it is a goal that is far away, but I am the national team, when France plays, I always see the matches, but the most important thing is Valencia and the objectives to be achieved.

"For any player, going with their national team is something special, but there is a lot of quality. I know I have quality too, but it's the coach who decides."
