World Cup 2018: Premier League Stars from Top Six Clubs Who Were Not Selected
They may have performed for the club but weren't good enough for the national team
The Premier League season has seen its fair share of thrills and spills this season but we were in for more this summer. The recent announcements of various FIFA World Cup squads have affected players and fans of major English clubs.
We take a look at one player from each of the big six from the Premier League that will be missing out on the World Cup in Russia in June.
#6 Arsenal: Alexandre Lacazette
Alexandre Lacazette has missed out on a place in France's national team squad for the World Cup. Didier Deschamps has excluded him based on his inconsistent form this season. Lacazette will be gutted with the decision but will have only himself to blame.
He has made 16 appearances for France and scored only 3 goals during his international career so far. While it's not a great tally and whether it played a role in the manager's decision will not matter as the player will not be headed to Russia despite playing a part in the qualifiers.
The likes of Kylian Mbappé, Olivier Giroud, Antoine Griezmann, Nabil Fékir, and Florian Thauvin were selected ahead of the Lacazette in the squad and they have all had better seasons than the Gunners frontman.
A talented player, Lacazette has to improve his seasonal form to earn his place in the future.
