Diaby recalled to France squad for Euro 2024 warmups against Germany and Chile

PARIS (AP) - France recalled Aston Villa forward Moussa Diaby for European Championship warmups against Germany and Chile.

Diaby last played for the national team in Ireland in a Euro 2024 qualifier in March last year.

He was selected ahead of emerging Paris Saint-Germain winger Bradley Barcola, who has made a good impression in his first season with the club.

Juventus midfielder Adrien Rabiot was included despite recently injuring the big toe on his left foot. He resumed training on Monday.

World Cup runner-up France hosts Germany on March 23 in Lyon and Chile three days later in Marseille.

At Euro 2024 in Germany, two-time champion France is in Group D with Austria, the Netherlands, and a playoff winner.
