With the World Cup competition a little shy of one month, a lot of National team side’s have been releasing lists of players that will make the trip to Brazil for the prestigious competition.
Today, the French Football Federation announced the 23 man squad that it’ll be sending to Brazil to represent and in the list included three of Arsenal’s first team players.
The three Arsenal players representing the Les Blues at the World Cup in June is a rather expected trio of Olivier Giroud, Laurent Koscielny, and Bacary Sagna – who have been outstanding for the Gunners all through the just concluded season.
Though France came very close to being kicked-out by Ukraine in their playoffs to determine one of UEFA’s final World Cup spots, they have the talent, experience, and pretty cushy World Cup draw to afford them a potentially deep run in next month’s tournament.
The three Arsenal stars will all be part of the Brazil-bound group – part of a formidable team that includes Franck Ribery, Karim Benzema, Paul Pogba, Blaise Matiudi, and Hugo Lloris.
There are also a number of potential 2014-15 Arsenal players representing France with transfer rumor names such as Antoine Griezmann and Loic Remy and Morgan Schneiderlin in the French reserves.
Most notable in the omissions for the French team are two Arsenal-turned-Manchester City turncoats, Gael Clichy and Samir Nasri, while Patrice Evra and Mamadou Sakho both made the team that will feature for the French side in Brazil.
