Newcastle United's Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa receives a late call-up to the France squad that will take on Germany.

Newcastle United defender Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa has been called up by France coach Didier Deschamps for Wednesday's friendly against Germany in Paris.

The 23-year-old has been selected as a replacement for Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane, who has picked up a muscle injury.

Uncapped Varane sustained the problem during Madrid's 1-0 defeat to Granada on Saturday night.

"Real Madrid and France doctors agreed that the player was not fit enough to play in the coming days," a statement read.

Yanga-Mbiwa, who joined Newcastle from Montpellier last month, has three senior international caps to his name.
