Speaking to RMC, French international defender Adil Rami reacted to his inclusion in the France World Cup squad.
“It is true that after Laurent’s (Koscielny) injury I starting thinking that I might have a bit more of a chance. But when you see your name on TV, it is a shock. And for me and the other Marseille players, we are dealing with difficult emotions at the moment anyway… I am sad about Laurent’s injury, he is a person I like a lot. My viewpoint is to never give up, I haven’t stolen my World Cup place from anyone. I succeeded at remaining consistent, and I kept believing. To see my name on the list, it makes me happy, when I see my mum and my family in tears, it is something special.”
