Newcastle United stars Loic Remy and Yohan Cabaye have been recalled to the France international squad. 

Coach Didier Deschamps has named the Toon players ahead of the World Cup qualifier with Finland next week, with teammate Mathieu Debuchy also selected for Les Bleus.  

Cabaye, who has 23 international caps, missed last month's qualifiers against Georgia and Belarus because of his on-going transfer saga involving Arsenal. 

The midfielder - who scored in Newcastle's 3-2 defeat to Everton on Monday - refused to train with his club after failing to force a move to north London and lacked match fitness. 

On-loan striker Remy was last used by Deschamps in March, but has been awarded a recall after a fine start to the season, hitting three goals in two games for his club thus far.

France also play a friendly against Australia on Friday before hosting Finland in the qualifier. 

Real Madrid star Karim Benzema and Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery are both included, as well as Juventus's Paul Pogba and Manchester City's Samir Nasri.

France squad to face Australia and Finland:

GKs: Landreau, Lloris, Mandanda.

Defenders: Abidal, Clichy, Debuchy, Evra, Koscielny, Sagna, Sakho, Varane.

Midfielders: Cabaye, Grenier, Matuidi, Nasri, Pogba, Sissoko.

Forwards: Benzema, Giroud, Payet, Rémy, Ribéry, Valbuena.
