France’s World Cup winners greeted their fans before taking part in the first training session of the season, ahead of their match against Germany in their UEFA Nations League opener.

Coach Didier Deschamps has named a 23-man squad without the injured Hugo Lloris and Steve Mandanda, both goalkeepers, with Alphonse Areola likely to win his first cap for France.

The likes of Kylian Mbappe, Paul Pogba and Raphael Varane were all called up at Clairefontaine,  where they will prepare for their first matches as the reigning World champions.
