France called up four Bayern Munich players for the upcoming international break where the reigning World Cup champions will take on Iceland (Friday October 11th at 2:45PM EST) and Turkey (Monday October 14th at 2:45PM EST).

Forward Kingsley Coman, who has been electric this season so far for Bayern Munich, received the call-up as did midfielder Corentin Tolisso and defenders Lucas Hernandez and Benjamin Pavard.

As he has attempted to battle back from an ACL injury, Tolisso has had an up-and-down season so far for the Bavarians, while Hernandez and Pavard have both excelled in Munich. The full roster for France is contained in the tweet below:

Pavard, who has played both center-back and outside-back for Bayern Munich, will likely slot in at right-back for France, but the status of Hernandez is unclear due to his current knee ailment.

It will be interesting if Hernandez is able to accept the call from France or if he will opt to sit out the international competition in hopes of getting his knee healthy.
