Nasri Refuses To Play For France

Samir Nasri has made it quite clear that until Didier Deschamps remains in charge, he is not going to feature for the France national side.

Nasri has been hurt to be overlooked by Deschamps for the FIFA World Cup 2014.

In one of his interviews quite a few years ago, Nasri had said that his only dream as a kid was to be able to represent his country one day.

When the midfielder got the opportunity to make his debut for the Les Blues in 2007, he was completely fascinated by the occasion.

Being a successful international footballer was one of the big motives of Nasri’s career, but, that’s not the case with him anymore.

Nasri doesn’t enjoy himself in the French camp as much as he used to do as a youngster a few years ago. He doesn’t feel at home under Deschamps.

When asked what problem Deschamps has with him, Nasri said, “Well, he says I don’t feel that amused when I am benched. Tell me the name of even a single player who is glad to be benched especially when he has no idea why he isn’t playing.”

“There are no bitter feelings in my heart for the team though, let me tell you that. I saw each and every match that France played in Brazil and that’s because I am a fan of the game.”

Nasri’s girlfriend was also quite angry about the exclusion of the playmaker from the Les Blues World Cup squad. She had even expressed her anger in her tweets.

The French side didn’t seem to be missing Nasri that much though in the World Cup. They were doing quite well without him before losing to Germany in the Round of 8.

Nasri has so far made 40 odd appearances for France scoring 5 goals.
