Ferland Mendy reveals he was taking a nap when he received his 1st France call-up

Speaking on the official FFF online streaming channel, Lyon left-back Ferland Mendy discussed the moment that he found out about his first ever call up to the French senior national team.

“I was asleep and “Guy” (Stéphan – French Assistant Manager) called me multiple times. He said to me “call me back, it is urgent.” I asked myself what I had done, if there was a problem… I called him back and he told me the good news, he told me to get my things together to go to the French national team. In the moment, I was still half-asleep, and then I saw that it was the truth and that I really did need to get my things together!”
