Sevilla forward Wissam Ben Yedder was called up by France for the first time on Thursday after his Champions League double against Manchester United earlier this week. Ben Yedder struck twice at Old Trafford to send Sevilla through to the quarter-finals with a 2-1 aggregate win against United on Tuesday.

The former Toulouse striker, 27, was included in Didier Deschamps’ squad for friendlies against Colombia on March 23 and in Russia against the World Cup hosts four days later.

France will play in Group C at the World Cup where they will face Australia, Peru and Denmark
