Lacazette, Giroud snubbed as Anthony Martial Earns France Call-Up as Didier Deschamps Names Squad for Euro 2020 Qualifiers

Manchester United's Anthony Martial has earned himself a return to the France squad, as Didier Deschamps has named his 23 players for the upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers against Moldova and Iceland. 

Martial was left out of the side that won the World Cup in the summer, and was called up in November for the conclusion of the Nations League, but had to pull out due to injury. 

Despite struggling with a groin injury in recent weeks, the 23-year-old now looks set for a first appearance for his country since their 3-1 win over Russia almost a year ago.

Elsewhere, there are expected call-ups for his United team-mate Paul Pogba, Tottenham's Hugo Lloris and Chelsea's N'Golo Kante.

There's no place for the in-form Alexandre Lacazette, while Olivier Giroud makes the cut despite a stunted season at Stamford Bridge so far.
