Yaya Toure: Manchester City's Samir Nasri suffering from France retirement

France manager Didier Deschamps believes his side have taken a lot of confidence away from their performance at the World Cup.

Yaya Toure has told RMC that Manchester City teammate Samir Nasri is feeling low away from France's national team, and says the Bleus outcast "really loves his country."

Nasri, 27, announced in August he was retiring from international football after missing out on France's 2014 World Cup campaign, despite an excellent season with City as they lifted the Premier League title.

With Paul Pogba and Raphael Varane, France's future looks bright

France manager Didier Deschamps believes his side have taken a lot of confidence away from their performance at the World Cup.

It was a boring affair, Paul Pogba was disappointing for the second game in a row, the newcomers (Josuha Guilavogui, Layvin Kurzawa, Eliaquim Mangala, Dimitri Payet and Andre-Pierre Gignac) were unconvincing and Zlatan Ibrahimovic opted to train with Paris Saint-Germain than be at the Velodrome.

A lone goal from French defender Raphael Varane would be enough to power Les Bleus 1-0 past Sweden.

Raphael Varane secured a late victory for France in their friendly clash against Sweden.

The Real Madrid defender nodded home the only goal of the game in the 83rd minute to give a much-changed Les Bleus the win.

France had the chances to make it a more comfortable evening at Marseille's Stade Velodrome but failed to take them, substitute Karim Benzema even missing a penalty four minutes from time.

The hosts showed eight changes from their previous match, a 1-1 draw against Albania, while Zlatan...
