Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette has been left out of the newest France squad named by manager Didier Deschamps on Thursday.

France face Moldova and Iceland in their first two qualifying games for Euro 2020 later this month.

Lacazette was left out of the latest France squad for the aforementioned games alongside Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte.

Former Lyon attacker Lacazette has been in very good form for the Gunners this season in their quest for major honours in both the Premier League and the Europa League.

Lacazette scored in five successive home league games until the weekend’s huge clash with top-four rivals Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium.

The Frenchman didn’t score against Manchester United but he was still able to provide two assists to give the Gunners a 2-0 home win over the Red Devils.

The win was enough to lift Arsenal into the top four places on the Premier League table.

France Full Squad:

Goalkeeper: Alphonse Areola, Hugo Lloris, Steve Mandanda

Defenders: Lucas Digne, Presnel Kimpembe, Layvin Kurzawa, Benjamin Pavard, Djibril Sidibe, Raphael Varane, Samuel Umtiti, Kurt Zouma

Midfielders: N’Golo Kante, Blaise Matuidi, Tanguy Ndombele, Paul Pogba, Moussa Sissoko

Forwards: Kingsley Coman, Nabil Fekir, Olivier Giroud, Antoine Griezmann, Anthony Martial, Kylian Mbappe, Florian Thauvin
