Arsenal midfielder Francis Coquelin has admitted that he harbours hope of making
Didier Deschamps’ 2016 Euro finals France squad despite having never been called up
The Frenchman broke into the Arsenal first team last season, establishing himself as first
choice defensive midfielder and arguably one of the best in the Premier League.
Coquelin still feels he has to prove himself at Arsenal before he earns his first cap for Les
“Every player wants to represent their country and the Euros in France is something massive
for any French player to be a part of,” Coquelin told Arsenal Player.
“To be part of the squad would be amazing but there are loads of things to do first and the most important thing is Arsenal.
“If I play well here maybe I will get a chance for France, but the most important thing is
Arsenal. As any French player would, though, you want to play for France and hopefully it can happen one day.
“It would be unbelievable. I won the Under-19 Euros and it was something unbelievable as
well. To win the Euros with the French national team would be even more crazy. If I perform well here, maybe I will get the chance to play for France but I think the most important thing is to stay focused on Arsenal
and then things will come along,” he concluded.
