France have recalled in-form Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud to their squad for the games against Sweden and Ivory Coast.

There is, however, no place for Real Madrid forward Karim Benzema, who again misses out and has not featured for his country since 2015.

Giroud is joined by club-mate Laurent Koscielny while Hugo Lloris, Paul Pogba and N'Golo Kante are among the other representatives from the Premier League.

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot is also included after some impressive showings for the Ligue 1 champions.

Squad in full: Areola, Lloris, Mandanda, Varane, Koscielny, Kurzawa, Umtiti, Digne, Sidibe, Corchia, Rami, Pogba, Matuidi, Kante, Rabiot, Sissoko, Payet, Griezmann, Gameiro, Fékir, Coman, Dembele, Giroud.
