Manchester United departee makes France squad


Despite being seemingly set to leave Manchester United this summer, former captain Patrice Evra has made the France squad for this summer’s World Cup.

Other Premier League talents in the squad include Tottenham Hotspurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, Newcastle’s Matthieu Debuchy and Moussa Sissoko, Arsenal’s Laurent Koscielny and Bacary Sagna, and Liverpool’s Mamadou Sakho.

Manchester City’s Samir Nasri is a notable exclusion, with Didier Deschamps having recently spoken about his attitude problems. He also feels that he is unable to work with him, despite Nasri’s clear talent, as evidenced by his title defining goal at the weekend.

Former Manchester United youth star Paul Pogba has also made the squad after a pair of sensational seasons at Juventus.
