This is how Didier Deschamps explained the omission of Samir Nasri from France’s World Cup squad [video]

Nasri may not be everyone’s cup of tea but of all the World Cup squad announcements this week, the exclusion of the Manchester City midfielder has been one of the most talked about.
Above is how Didier Deschamps explained Nasri’s omission from the Les Bleus squad.
