Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin has been called into France's squad for the 2014 World Cup
Updated 2:59pm Friday 6th June 2014 in Sport
The 24-year-old is one of two players promoted from the reserve list, after injury ruled out Franck Ribery and Clément Grenier.
Schneiderlin, who has not yet been capped at senior level by his country, is joined by Montpellier midfielder Rémy Cabella in the squad.
Ribery had been following an individual training programme to overcome a back problem and failed to prove his fitness after rejoining the full squad on Friday.
Grenier sat out the session as he underwent scans on a thigh injury, and both players' worst fears were confirmed by coach Didier Deschamps.
