Barcelona winger Ousmane Dembele has been left at home by France coach Didier Deschamps for the latest round of international fixtures.

France will face Portugal and Sweden in the UEFA Nations League, and will also square off against Finland in a friendly over the next two weeks.

Dembele is the big omission from the latest squad.

Kylian Mbappe has been called up, despite being injured, something that is likely to cause friction with PSG boss Thomas Tuchel, who has a similar situation with Neymar and Brazil.

Marcus Thuram, son of legendary defender Lilian, has also been handed his first call-up due to his sparkling form for Borussia Monchengladbach.

Rennes midfielder Eduardo Camavinga is also out of the squad, however the promising 18-year-old misses out through injury.

Goalkeepers: Benoît Costil (Bordeaux), Hugo Lloris (Tottenham), Mike Maignan (Lille), Steve Mandanda (Marseille).

Defenders: Lucas Digne (Everton), Léo Dubois (Lyon), Lucas Hernandez (Bayern Munich), Presnel Kimpembe (PSG), Clément Lenglet (Barcelona), Benjamin Pavard (Bayern Munich), Raphaël Varane (Real Madrid), Kurt Zouma (Chelsea)

Midfielders: N'Golo Kanté (Chelsea), Steven Nzonzi (Rennes), Paul Pogba (Manchester United), Adrien Rabiot (Juventus), Moussa Sissoko (Tottenham), Corentin Tolisso (Bayern Munich).

Forwards: Wissam Ben Yedder (Monaco), Kingsley Coman (Bayern Munich), Nabil Fekir (Betis), Olivier Giroud (Chelsea), Antoine Griezmann (Barcelona), Anthony Martial (Manchester United), Kylian Mbappé (PSG), Marcus Thuram (Borussia Mönchengladbach).
