Remy has scored three goals in four Premier League appearances since moving to St James' Park on loan from QPR in the summer.

That form has seen him get the nod ahead of Marseille's Andre-Pierre Gignac in Didier Deschamps' squad for the friendly against Australia on October 11 and the World Cup qualifier against Finland four days later.

Real Madrid's Raphael Varane is included after returning to fitness, while Liverpool's Mamadou Sakho is also among the defenders following his summer switch from Paris Saint-Germain.

France squad: Mickael Landreau (Bastia), Hugo Lloris (Tottenham), Steve Mandanda (Marseille); Eric Abidal (Monaco), Gael Clichy (Manchester City), Mathieu Debuchy (Newcastle), Patrice Evra (Manchester United), Laurent Koscielny (Arsenal), Bacary Sagna (Arsenal), Mamadou Sakho (Liverpool), Raphael Varane (Real Madrid); Blaise Matuidi (Paris St Germain), Paul Pogba (Juventus), Moussa Sissoko (Newcastle), Clement Grenier (Lyon), Samir Nasri (Manchester City), Yohan Cabaye (Newcastle); Karim Benzema (Real Madrid), Olivier Giroud (Arsenal), Dimitri Payet (Marseille), Franck Ribery (Bayern Munich), Mathieu Valbuena (Marseille), Loic Remy (Newcastle).

S I've always envisioned him as a Pirlo or a Scholes, though he needs some of Andy Murray's conditioning and shiny, ankle supports to keep his own from buckling under the tackles that will (inevitably) come his way. He's got the physique and low centre of gravity to flourish, but needs to make himself more resilient.

Time For Another Wenger U-Turn On Wilshere?

A

s a United fan I fell I can say this without accusation of bias, Sergio Aguero is for me the only player close to Ronaldo or Messi, what goes against him is his injury record, Hazard is good in fits but doesn't give enough end product in my eyes, Tevez would be 4th for me
