Loic Remy: On-loan Newcastle striker back in the fold for France

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).
