Anthony Martial, Alexandre Lacazette and Dimitri Payet have all been left out of the France squad for the World Cup. Alexandre Lacazette of Arsenal also misses out after scoring 17 goals in his first season in England.
Payet finally missed out his chance of shining in Russian Federation, as Deschamps feared a risk of relapse of the injury despite a three-week recovery.
Former Blackburn and Stoke midfielder Steven N'Zonzi is included, with the Sevilla player having made two France appearances, while former Newcastle forward Florian Thauvin and ex-Crystal Palace goalkeeper Steve Mandanda, who are both now at Marseille, also make the cut.
Deschamps has a wealth of attacking options despite the omissions of Lacazette and Martial, with Chelsea's Olivier Giroud competing with the likes of Atletico striker Antoine Griezmann, PSG forward Kylian Mbappe and Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele for selection in Russian Federation.
He went off injured in Marseille's Europa League final defeat to Atletico Madrid on Wednesday night.
