Barcelona defender Clement Lenglet has won his first call-up to the France squad for June’s international fixtures.

The world champions play Bolivia in a friendly on June 2 and then take on Turkey and Andorra in Euro 2020 qualifying.

Fellow Barca centre-back Samuel Umtiti has also been called up by Didier Deschamps, although there is no place for Ousmane Dembele, who is currently out injured.

The call-up is a deserved reward for Lenglet who has enjoyed a successful season at the Camp Nou and has taken advantage of Umtiti’s injury problems to become first choice in central defence alongside Gerard Pique.
