Paris: France coach Didier Deschamps recalled midfielder Yohan Cabaye and striker Loic Remy to his squad on Thursday for an upcoming World Cup qualifier against Finland.
Cabaye, who has 23 international caps, missed last month's qualifiers against Georgia and Belarus because he lacked match fitness. At the time, he was refusing to train for his club Newcastle as he tried to push through a move to join Arsenal.
Cabaye has since returned to the Newcastle team and scored with a brilliant first-time strike in Monday night's 3-2 loss at Everton.
France plays Australia in a friendly match next Friday and then hosts Finland at Stade de France four days later.
Remy has scored three goals in four games for Newcastle. His last France appearance was in March against Georgia.
