France Snubbed XI

France Snubbed XI

By Kurt Buckerfield - Mar 20, 2017 11:57 AM @KurtLaduma

Several big names were left out of France's latest international squad – here is a starting XI of the quality Didier Deschamps snubbed for the team's upcoming 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier.

Click through the gallery above to see the starting XI of snubbed players.

Deschamps recently named his squad for their World Cup qualifier against Luxemburg on Saturday, with the same players also taking on Spain in an international friendly three days later.

Many quality stars were left out of the French side, including Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema and Lyon's Alexandre Lacazette, who has found the net 29 times in 35 games this season.

Defenders Kurt Zouma, Raphael Varane and Aymeric Laporte were also overlooked, with many believing those players could walk into most top sides in Europe. Celtic starlet Moussa Dembele is another player in great form who missed out.

France's snubbed XI:

GK: Steve Mandanda (Crystal Palace)

DF: Kurt Zouma (Chelsea)

DF: Raphael Varane (Real Madrid)

DF: Aymeric Laporte (Athletic Bilbao)

MF: Tiemoue Bakayoko (Monaco)

MF: Morgan Schneiderlin (Everton)

MF: Kingsley Coman (Bayern Munich)

MF: Anthony Martial (Manchester United)

FW: Karim Benzema (Real Madrid)

FW: Alexandre Lacazette (Lyon)

FW: Moussa Dembele (Celtic)

This eleven can beat bafana bafana timesly. However this means France have produced a lot of talent. It means that the coach is spoiled for choice in France

I didn't go through this line up at 1st and I thought is the selected one. If you can snub these players then meaning you're full of quality in your disposal
