Benjamin Mendy has been recalled by France for the upcoming European Championship qualifiers against Moldova and Albania.

Mendy, who has nine caps for his country, has not played for France for more than a year and his recall is another positive step forward after a frustrating run of injuries for the powerful left-back.

Mendy enjoyed perhaps his best game of the campaign against Atalanta, with several of his swashbuckling runs forward a clear sign the former Monaco star is returning to peak fitness.
