Raphael Varane has expressed his disappointment at missing out on Euro 2016 through injury but insists he will be France's biggest supporter at the tournament.
Sevilla centre-back Adil Rami has been called into the squad in place of Varane, whose absence will serve as a considerable blow to France's hopes of regaining the trophy they last won 16 years ago.

Deschamps subsequently described Varane's injury as "annoying", but said in a media conference on Wednesday: "I have confidence in the players we have. Now I have to find the best solution for the team."
And they will have a vociferous fan in Varane, who posted on Twitter: "I am very unhappy and disappointed not to participate in Euro 2016 and will stay whatever happens [number] 1 supporter of Les Bleus. Allez La France."
France begin Euro 2016 against Romania at Stade de France on June 10.
