France coach Didier Deschamps has left Samuel Umtiti and Alexandre Lacazette out of his national squad for September’s Euro 2020 qualifiers against Andorra and Albania, but Laporte is in line to win his first cap. Sports enthusiasts from around the world can purchase France Euro Cup Tickets online to the witness live performance of Euro Cup 2020.
Arsenal forward Lacazette, 28, has not presented for France since November 2017, while 2018 World Cup winner Umtiti was involved in June but appearances competition for minutes and fitness problems with Barcelona.
Speaking shortly after naming his latest squad, Deschamps said that it is not the best moment to include Umtiti.
“I have not forgotten what he has took to this team,” he said. “His position has become tougher over the past six months. He is no longer an undeniable starter and he has physical problems. It was a hard decision, but we must look forward not backwards. However, the door is always open,” Deschamps added.
Manchester City defender Laporte, 25, is included after being ignored on numerous circumstances and Deschamps said his City form played a big role.
Deschamps said, “I hope he is happy to be here. He is playing for a big club and performing well, like the performance in last year. If he is here, it is to the disadvantage of others, who are not in the best decent positions.”

There was also a first call-up for Lille onward Jonathan IKone. Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe headlines a list of injured regulars that take in Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante, Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele and Tottenham Hotspur’s Tanguy Nodombele.
“With Kylian, it is Kylian.”I cannot reject that I would have liked to have him available, like others. This is his first muscular injury. He is a player who is winding seasons together, as well as international matches, and only had a short holiday,” Deschamps said.
On Dembele, Deschamps was serious about his unprofessional approach to his fitness away from the pitch.
