France coach Didier Deschamps has left Samir Nasri out of his 23-man squad for the World Cup in Brazil.

Nasri is not the only one to miss out, with City's Gael Clichy and Valencia's Adil Rami missing out.

Nasri previously told Canal+ that "the die is cast. I respect (Didier Deschamps') choice. I'll watch the World Cup on TV," and that "if starting games in a club like Manchester City and winning two titles isn't enough, too bad, I won't regret anything."

France will play Honduras, Ecuador and Switzerland in Group E.
