Jonathan Zebina has thanked Juventus for their part in earning him his first cap for France.

The 26-year-old, former Roma defender, believes moving to Juventus has raised his profile back in hhis homeland.

Zebina is set to make his international debut against Sweden on Wendesday.

“I made the national team thanks to Juve,” Zebina told L’Equipe.

“If I’d remained at Roma, I’d have had less of a chance.

“At Roma you can also have a really good match but the world would not know about it. JuveĀ is different, they are a club with a different media standing.”
