French Euro squad announced

Cabaye in the squad by the skin of his teeth. Diarra is the main man to play the holding role in front of the defence. Kanté has probably overtaken Yohan in the last couple of months.
The big debate tonight is the non-selection of Ben Arfa who has been one of the top 3 players over here this season and whose attitude has been totally transformed since his transfer to Nice last summer. Barcelona are said to be more than interested.
Other surprises are the non-selection of Lacazette (Lyon) who finished the season as 2nd top scorer behind Ibrahimovic and the selection of the relatively unknown defender Sidibé ahead of Samuel Umtiti (Lyon) who's been very good in the second half of the season!

Goalkeepers : Hugo Lloris, Steve Mandanda, Benoît Costil

Defenders : Raphael Varane, Laurent Koscielny, Eliaquim Mangala, Jérémy Mathieu, Patrice Evra, Bacary Sagna, Christophe Jallet, Lucas Digne

Midfielders : Paul Pogba, Blaise Matuidi, Lassana Diarra, N’Golo Kanté, Yohan Cabaye, Moussa Sissoko

Forwards : Antoine Griezmann, Dimitri Payet, Anthony Martial, Kingsley Coman, Olivier Giroud, André-Pierre Gignac

On standby : Alphonse Areola, Hatem Ben Arfa, Kevin Gameiro, Alexandre Lacazette, Adrien Rabiot, Morgan Schneiderlin, Djibril Sidibé, Samuel Umtiti

Such strength in depth.

Heck of a squad, even accounting for absentees, particularly Benzema.

I make France favourites.

You would think that but they're going to fall over at some point.

Germany looms large like some kind of looming thing.

Laporte,Benzema,Nasri,Ribery,Kondogbia.Obviously all out for different reasons but that is a great choice to have.I would have Kante starting over Diarra.

Interesting to see that Schneiderlin is only on stand by...he has had a really mediocre season at the wankers.

Cabaye did the right thing joining us even if it was largely to get regular first team football to make the Euros.

He won't play, and rightly so.

Depends on whether the French implode or not off the field. DD seems to have more control over them to be fair to him mind.

I can't really see one English player getting in that squad, maybe Vardy or Kane for one of the strikers.

Their midfield has to be the best in the tournament?

Yep, would rather both them than shit-house Giroud.

Deschamps clearly has a thing for Cabaye, probably because they are/were similar types of players. He hasn’t stood out at all for us over the course of the season.

Pogba, Kante, Matuidi is a seriously powerful midfield. Put them behind Martial, Griezmann and Coman/Payet and you have the favourites for the title.

Yes, he is, and I mentioned this on the French football thread ("le championnat") a week or two ago. He's had an excellent season in spite of everything that's been happening in Marseille this season. Although I quite like Wayne, Steve Mandanda would be more than an upgrade though I'm sure he'll after a "bigger" club than us. Now if we could offer him European football next season ...
(Marseille's Cameroonian CB Nkoulou is also available on a free this summer, just saying like)
