Warren Zaire-Emery, a PSG regular, is poised for another career milestone as he's been named in Didier Deschamps' squad for France's matches against Gibraltar and Greece on November 18 and 21 at the senior level.
Despite France's Euro 2024 qualification still not being guaranteed, Deschamps may experiment, presenting a golden opportunity for the 17-year-old Parisian to make his debut with the senior international squad.
France confirmed Zaire-Emery's inclusion among the 23 selected, solidifying his swift ascent through the national ranks.
Deschamps, impressed by the young player's standout performances, particularly in the recent 3-0 win against Milan, where he earned UEFA's Man of the Match, sees him as a valuable addition to his team ahead of Euro 2024.
While speculation surrounded Zaire-Emery's call-up, Deschamps clarified that the opportunity wasn't going to be contingent on another player's injury. The withdrawal of Aurélien Tchouaméni due to injury further opened the door for Zaire-Emery, with Deschamps indicating both would have been selected if Tchouaméni was fit.
Should Zaire-Emery feature against Gibraltar or Greece, he'll become the youngest post-war French international, surpassing Eduardo Camavinga's record at 17 years and 8 months.
