France boss Didier Deschamps has been full of praise for Clement Lenglet and his performances for the national team.

The Barcelona centre-back only won his first call-up for France in May but seems to have made a good impression during his time with the world champions.

Lenglet partnered Raphael Varane in central defence during France’s 4-1 win over Albania on Saturday, and Deschamps has highlighted his qualities.

“He had a great season with Barca,” he said. “He has a lot of serenity, assurance and technical ease. He’s calm on the ball. Without being very big, he is also effective in duels and knows how to anticipate. He’s still improving but he gives off a lot of confidence.”
