Deschamps drops Evra from France squad
Looks like Patrice Evra’s days as a France international may be numbered, as France coach has snubbed the veteran defender ahead of a a crucial friendly and World Cup qualifier against Italy and Belarus next month.
Evra was a key figure and contributed largely to Les Blues’s Euro 2016 qualification but it seems Didier Deschamps wants to try out other players this time around, as he hinted at Evra’s retirement from international football.
“He [Evra] is still at a good level, but I need to look forward to a World Cup in two years,” he said. “I have not closed the door on Evra. I know what he is capable of. It is up to him to maintain his high level.”

Moses featured for the Blues in their EFL cup win against Briston Rovers and even found the back of the net in the 31st minute. He may feature for Chelsea against Burnley on Saturday, we really hope he does, go Moses!
