6 PSG players called up by France international team


Even after getting dominated by the English contingent of Newcastle this past Wednesday, Paris Saint-Germain will see six of their players don the French national colors during the upcoming international break.

Among them, four players—Lucas Hernandez, Kylian Mbappe, Ousmane Dembele, and Randal Kolo Muani—have been called up to Didier Deschamps' France senior squad.

Those four men will be joined by Warren Zaire-Emery and Bradley Barcola, although these two have been called up by France U21 coach Thierry Henry.

This is an encore of the choices made in the last international break in September. Notably, both PSG and the national teams have entrusted captaincy responsibilities to PSG players, with Mbappe leading the seniors and Zaire-Emery captaining the Espoirs.

The players are set to participate in two matches at both levels. The France senior team will face the Netherlands at the Johan-Cruyff Arena on October 13 in Euro 2024 qualifying, followed by a friendly against Scotland in Lille on October 17.

At the same time, the Espoirs will contend in Euro U21 2025 qualifiers against Bosnia on October 13 and Cyprus on October 17, mirroring the schedule of their senior counterparts.
