Romain Alessandrini admits to apprehension about his France call-up but insists that he will do all he can to stay in the squad.

Rennes attacking midfielder Romain Alessandrini has admitted that he was "apprehensive" about arriving for training with the France squad after his call-up by Didier Deschamps.

Alessandrini made his Ligue 1 debut at the start of this season after signing for Rennes from Ligue 2 side Clermont Foot.

He has said that he will do all he can to "repay the faith" that has been shown in him.

"I was a bit apprehensive, I hesitated a bit," Ligue1.com quotes Alessandrini as saying. "I followed the path and ended up finding the France team.

"I found myself saying hello to world-class players. I've only ever seen them on the TV before. It hasn't sunk in yet.

"There's a lot of pride and a fair bit of pressure, but I'll do all I can to repay the faith that has been shown in me."

France play Germany in a friendly on Wednesday night.
