Deschamps recalls Coman and Kurzawa for Euro 2020 qualifiers

PARIS (AP) — France coach Didier Deschamps recalled Bayern Munich winger Kingsley Coman and Paris Saint-Germain left back Layvin Kurzawa for upcoming European Championship qualifiers against Moldova and Iceland.

They both last played for France in November 2017, while Manchester United forward Anthony Martial, Tottenham midfielder Moussa Sissoko and Everton center half Kurt Zouma were also recalled. None of the five players won the World Cup with France last year.

Deschamps overlooked defender Clement Lenglet, despite his good form for Spanish league leader and Champions League quarterfinalist Barcelona.

Les Bleus are at Moldova on Friday and host Iceland next Monday in Group H as the Euro 2020 qualifiers get underway. Albania, Andorra and Turkey are also in Group H.
