Newcastle United players Hatem Ben Arfa and Yohan Cabaye have been selected for the France squad for the European Championships.
Cabaye is one of seven midfielders in the squad and Ben Arfa is included in the six forwards chosen.
Cabaye joined Newcastle last summer from Lille and was a consistent performer in Alan Pardew’s side as United finished fifth in the Premier League.
Ben Arfa has been with Newcastle for two seasons.
He was originally signed on loan by Chris Hughton and despite suffering a broken leg was signed permanently from Marseille in 2011.
Both players started for France in their recent friendly win over Iceland.
