After France naming its squad that will be travelling to Brazil to represent the country during the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Morgan Schneiderlin is very happy. The Southampton player who plays in the midfield position was included in the standby list for France during the upcoming summer tournament.
Morgan who is now 24 years of age has made a total of 33 premier league appearance under the leadership of Mauricio Pochettino who is the Saints manager. The Southampton’s midfielder has also netted twice enabling the Saints have a highest finishing power.
Mauricio’s club secured the highest finish that has been in search for 11 years. On the matter of France, Schneiderlin has only played in the under 21 games in the previous times.
Due to the domestic form the star has, Deschamps made the decision to have him as one of the seven reservists for the 2014 FIFA World Cup. In 2008, Schneiderlin made a move from Strasbourg to St Mary’s.
Schneiderlin has expressed his happiness terming it is an honour to be part of the national team squad. He said that he did not even have the hopes of getting a call from Didier Deschamps.
When talking to L’Equipe, Schneiderlin said that his coach and family were hopeful for him being included into the squad but himself did not even have that in his mind.
He further said during the match that they were playing against Everton there was a staff from France who was there to monitor his performance. Schneiderlin however did not play the match as he was having a problem with his thigh.
The international superstar said that he has accepted that offer with a lot of pleasure since he even knew that he won’t be part of the 30 man provisional list. He adds that this will give him the required experience and will indeed showcase the best of his career.
