The midfielder has complained on many occasions that his lack of first-team chances at United was hindering his international career, so he is sure to be buoyed by his inclusion in Luis Felipe Scolari’s 22-man squad.

Meanwhile, France boss Jacques Santini has again overlooked both Laurent Robert and Olivier Bernard, for the forthcoming friendly against Belgium.
