Coach Didier Deschamps announced the French team on Thursday for the next World Cup qualifiers with four new players and no room for veteran striker Olivier Giroud.

Giroud is the France team’s second-best scorer with 46 goals, but the 34-year-old AC Milan striker lost his place to Karim Benzema at the European Championship.

Giroud has played 110 matches for France and has been part of every team since his first call in November 2011.

“I have never taken a radical decision with any player. It is simply a sporting choice compared to the current form,” said Deschamps. “There is obviously a lot of competition for places. It is up to Olivier to continue to play well.

Deschamps is hopeful that Giroud’s move to Milan will lead to this following a loss of form last season with Chelsea, where Giroud barely played in the months leading up to Euro 2020.

“His situation has changed with his transfer to Milan, where he will play a lot more,” Deschamps said.

The four unselected players are Bayer Leverkusen striker Moussa Diaby, Monaco midfielder Aurélien Tchouameni, AC Milan left-back Theo Hernandez and Roma midfielder Jordan Veretout.

Hernandez has impressed with his offensive skills, scoring 15 goals in the past two seasons.

Veretout scored 10 league goals in Serie A last season and opened this campaign with two goals in his first game last weekend.

Deschamps also recalled Manchester United striker Anthony Martial, who missed Euro 2020 after injuring his left knee.

France host Bosnia and Herzegovina in Strasbourg on September 1 and travel to face Ukraine in Kiev three days later before hosting Finland in Lyon on September 7.

France leads Group D with seven points in three games.

But France, winner of the 2018 World Cup, did not meet the expectations of Euro 2020, losing on penalties to Switzerland in the round of 16.

“The most important is what lies ahead,” said Deschamps. “What’s behind is in the rearview mirror. It will not help us to move forward.
