Didier Deschamps has finalised his squad for Euro 2016 and there is no place for Liverpool's Mamadou Sakho whose recent suspension for failing a drugs test has expired.

The host nation have instead chosen Manchester City's Eliaquim Mangala, Lyon's Samuel Umtiti and Adil Rami as the centre-back options alongside Arsenal's Laurent Koscielny, since Jeremy Mathieu of Barcelona and Real Madrid's Raphael Varane are both injured.


Key players like Paul Pogba and Antoine Griezmann are the main highlights of a squad, with 10 Premier League players included.

Goalkeepers: Hugo Lloris, Steve Mandanda, Benoit Costil

Defenders: Samuel Umtiti, Laurent Koscielny, Eliaquim Mangala, Adil Rami, Patrice Evra, Bacary Sagna, Lucas Digne, Christophe Jallet

Midfielders: Paul Pogba, Blaise Matuidi, Lassana Diarra, N'Golo Kante, Yohan Cabaye, Moussa Sissoko

Forwards: Antoine Griezmann, Dimitri Payet, Anthony Martial, Kingsley Coman, Olivier Giroud, Andre-Pierre Gignac
