FOOTBALL : Didier Deschamps explains why he left Anthony Martial & Alexandre Lacazette out of France’s World Cup squad

share on:

Didier Deschamps says he omitted both Alexandre Lacazette and Anthony Martial from his France World Cup squad because he has too many striking options to choose from. Both players were left on the stand-by lift for this summer’s tournament in Russia, despite the Arsenal forward scoring eight times in his last 10 appearances after returning from injury. Martial’s absence was somewhat less surprising, having fallen out of favour under Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho in recent weeks and picking up a knee injury ahead of the FA Cup final.
