France announce squad for November international break
Warren Zaïre-Emery has been called for the first time by France
Warren Zaïre-Emery, a 17-year-old midfield maestro for Paris Saint-Germain, has been called up to the France national squad for the first time. This Thursday afternoon, Les Bleus coach Didier Deschamps unveiled his team for France’s November games.
It is hardly surprising that Zaïre-Emery be included, considering how well the young Parisian has performed for Luis Enrique’s PSG. For a player Deschamps has not yet coached, Deschamps had already expressed great regard for him last month, which is unusual.
Thierry Henry’s France U21 team captain, “WZE,” will now advance to the senior squad. If Zaïre-Emery plays even a single minute for France during the impending break, he will become the youngest member of the France national team since 1945, breaking the mark currently held by Eduardo Camavinga.
