Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri has hinted that he may decide to call international career to an end after not being favoured by manager Didier Deschamps. The 27-year-old was not taken to the World Cup 2014 despite being one of the talented players in the squad. This is because he is perceived to have cost a lot of trouble in the team during the last few major tournaments. France did not do well at the Euro 2012 or the World Cup 2010. This was seen as largely because of the infighting within the camp, which led to Raymond Domenech losing his job. Laurent Blanc also do not have much better as the national team manager.
His successor Didier Deschamps, though, has done exceedingly well and this has largely been seen as a result of dropping players like Nasri. The former Marseille manager said before the World Cup that he wanted discipline levels to be extremely high. In order to focus on that, he said that he was even willing to sacrifice on the most talented players. After being overlooked for the national team, Nasri may decide to focus on his club career alone. This would rob the national team of a player who was once spoken of as the successor to Zinedine Zidane.
Since making his debut in 2007, Nasri has made 41 appearances for the national team.
“I made it a while ago but I will announce it when the time is right. With the national team I didn’t win anything. So it’s more easy to take this decision than if we’d just won something. When you play for a big club, and you play lots of games, it’s easy to come to this decision. Even before the summer, during Euro 2012 I had a lot going on,” said Nasri about his international future.

France reached the quarter-final of the World Cup 2014 after a 2-0 win over Nigeria, which was certainly not easy. France came into the competition after having done very poorly in the last two major tournaments. However, the tactical management of Didier Deschamps coupled with the iron fist regard to indiscipline has paid off dividends for the Europeans. They have reached the quarter-finals of the competition by scoring lots of goals along the way. France had to dig deep in to get this victory, as Nigeria proved more than resilient.
It took late second-half goals in order to get this victory. For long periods of the second half, it looked like Nigeria would get a stunning victory because they had several chances to score. However, Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris stood between them and the goal with a brilliant performance. Deschamps made a few tactical changes in substitutions around the 75 minute mark that proved to be the decisive aspect in the match. Pogba, who is one of the favourites to win the young player of the tournament award, finally found a way past Nigeria goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama.
After the match, Deschamps stated that he is extremely happy with the victory. He is aware that Germany will be providing a huge test. This current German team has a lot of top level experience.
“I am very proud of everything we did from the start. There was tension out there. They are a very strong side and there were a lot of duels. But we’re through. We’re in the quarter finals and we’ll do everything we can to go a stage further,” said the French national team boss. “There are no words to describe this. I know there is a whole country behind us. Scoring that goal really liberated us. I am so happy for the team and all France. I’m speechless,” said Pogba.
