Being called up for international duty in this day and age seems easier than ever before, with players seemingly being named for the first-time every slate of national fixtures, except if you play for France.

With Giroud not starting regularly for Chelsea and Haller continuing to impress in the Premier League, there is a chance that the West Ham striker could be selected for the France squad heading into EURO 2020.

With the Blues’ attacker seemingly feeling the effects of age, Haller could capitalise on Giroud’s decrease in ability and athleticism, and use it as his platform to impress Deschamps and win his spot for next summer’s European competition.

Indeed, the West Ham attacker, who has already scored three goals this season, has freely admitted that he wants to play for France one day, saying to The Daily Star: “I would like to play for France.

Just to prove to myself and show I can be effective.” Although Haller has never represented France at any age group, it is still damming to see Deschamps completely ignore the West Ham striker for the September international fixtures, with Arsenal fans equally as annoyed as West Ham supporters as Alexandre Lacazette was also not chosen by the Les Bleus manager as reported by Football London.

The reigning World Cup champions are a well-oiled machine, with France manager Didier Deschamps overseeing one of the most talented nations in the world and bringing in the trophies to back it up, yet when it comes to his squad selections, they are some of the most predictable in the world game.

Olivier Giroud was called up yet again to the France squad despite not scoring a Premier League goal since last April as numbers from Transfermarkt show, leading many to believe why Sebastien Haller had not received the nod ahead of the now 32-year-old striker.
