Nasri Expecting to Watch World Cup on TV

MOST COMMENTED

Despite winning the Premier League title with Manchester City this weekend, Frenchman Samir Nasri says he doesn’t expect to be called in to Didier Deschamps' France squad for the World Cup this summer. Nasri, who scored the opening goal in City’s title-clinching 2-0 win against West Ham on Sunday, was omitted from Deschamps’ most recent national team selection for a friendly against the Netherlands in March.

"I'll go on holiday and watch the World Cup on TV,'' the 26-year-old told Canal Plus.

Meanwhile, City coach Manuel Pellegrini has warned Deschamps about leaving the French midfielder out of his 23-man squad. "The manager of France hasn't said anything about the list, but I can't believe Samir Nasri won't be in it because he was one of the best players in the Premier League and very important for our squad," the Chilean said after the West Ham win. "It will be an important mistake if he doesn't play in the World Cup."
