Glenn Roeder says midfielder Charles N’Zogbia could be part of the future of the France squad.

Roeder: ‘People sometimes forget that Charles is very new on the scene. It’s his first full season, I think it’s fair to say, although it probably seems he’s been around longer than that.

‘I’m on to him all the time about having a big goal of getting into the French squad. That might be a couple of years away, but I’ve said to Charles, ‘If you don’t believe you can get into the French squad one day, what’s the point of playing?’

‘Hopefully, he will buy into that idea and in a couple of years’ time, we will see him move on to that sort of stage.’
