Yanga-Mbiwa recalled by France national team


Roma’s Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa has been recalled by the French national team manager Didier Deschamps to join Les Bleus after a nearly two year absence.

Mapou, who joined Roma on loan, has played exceptional for the Giallorossi as he has filled-in seamlessly for Leandro Castan and Davide Astori, who are out injured. The former Montpellier man will replace injured defender Laurent Koscielny in Deschamps’ squad.
