Chelsea striker Loic Remy has been blasted for moving to Stamford Bridge this summer as his lack of regular action will have a negative impact on his prospects with the France national team. (Le 10 Sport)

The 27-year-old joined the Blues from Queens Park Rangers in a £10.5m deal late in the transfer window after Jose Mourinho identified him as the man to fill the void left by Fernando Torres.

However, the earlier acquisition of £32m marksman Diego Costa from Atletico Madrid meant that Remy - who earns £90,000-a-week in west London - would've known that his chances at Chelsea would be restricted, and French journalist Pierre Mendes criticised the player's motivation.

Remy did score on his debut in the recent 4-2 victory over Swansea in the Premier League last month, but will need to make his appearances count when called upon by his country.

The forward did exactly that by netting in last night's 3-0 Euro 2016 qualifying victory over Armenia, staking his claim for a place in Didier Deschamps' side moving forward.
