Sélections : première convocation avec les Bleus pour Ferland Mendy !
Benjamin Mendy's injury opened up a spot for the 23-year-old OL left back, who could make his debut with Les Bleus in the final international break of 2018.

There are now three Lyon players in France's latest squad, with Ferland Mendy joining OL teammates Nabil Fekir (19 caps, two goals) and Tanguy Ndombele (two caps) at Clairefontaine as a late replacement for the injured Benjamin Mendy. This is the 23-year-old left back's (14 starts, one goal, one assist this season) first-ever call-up with Les Bleus.

Mendy and the reigning world champions will face the Netherlands on Friday, November 16 Rotterdam in the UEFA Nations League, followed by a friendly against Uruguay on Tuesday, November 20th at the Stade de France in the final international break of 2018.
