The official squad for France's World Cup campaign was announced on Thursday, July 6, and Paris Saint-Germain can be pretty proud of their contribution as seven of their players have been selected.

The World Cup is set to commence in a few weeks, meaning the selected players of each nation have been announced, and others are starting to.

Before France's selection, PSG had six players named for the WC and now have gone into double digits with a total of 13 to be involved between all nations participating in the tournament.

Which French players have been chosen?

GK - Constance Picaud

Defenders - De Almeida, Sakina Karchaoui, Estelle Cascarino

Midfielders - Laurina Fazer, Grace Geyoro

Forwards - Kadidiatou Diani

This is undoubtedly a great honor for PSG, in terms of having the majority of their players featured in the best soccer competition.

Sadly, Marie-Antoinette Katoto and Oriane Jean-Francois will not be able to travel with the national side due to injuries for the pair.

Sandy Baltimore will also miss out after not being named for the preliminary squad. There is no exact reason for this, but will probably be down to management not thinking her season was up to standards and therefore choosing other players to take her place.

The seven Paris players will attempt to win France's first-ever World Cup trophy, as they have failed even to make a single final, and their biggest achievement in the tournament being fourth place.

The Women's World Cup is set to begin on the 20th of July, with only a few days to go before we see which of the 13 PSG players will shine the brightest.
