thumbnail Hello,

Didier Deschamps has announced the team for his first game as boss of Les Blues, with the four Premier League stars likely to feature at some point against the South Americans

New France coach Didier Deschamps has named his 22-man squad for the upcoming international friendly against Uruguay on August 15, with four Premier League stars included.

Gael Clichy and Patrice Evra will be contesting a slot at left-back, while Arsenal are represented by Laurent Koscielny and new signing Olivier Giroud.

Deschamps already stated that he was likely to make a number of changes to the team that went to Euro 2012, and has called up several players who did not travel to Poland and Ukraine this summer.

Rio Mavuba, Christophe Jallet, Raphael Varane, Etienne Capoue, Maxime Gonalons, Bafetimbi Gomis, Jimmy Briand and Dimitri Payet are all fresh faces in les Bleus' team for next week's match.

Adil Rami and Yohan Cabaye miss out due to injury, while Samir Nasri and Jeremy Menez are suspended after being sanctioned by the French Football Federation (FFF) for their behaviour at Euro 2012.

Other players who have not been called up include Yann M'Vila, Hatem Ben Arfa and Florent Malouda.
