Morgan Schneiderlin has been called up to the France Euro 2016 squad after Mamadou Sakho was left out despite being eligible to play.

The Liverpool defender has missed seven games already but was cleared to play again after his 30-day provisional suspension for failing a drugs test expired at the weekend.

However France coach Didier Deschamps, who has come in for critism by Karim Benzema, has opted with Manchester Utd midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin instead after Lassana Diarra sustained a knee injury.
