Everton manager Marco Silva believes it was quite logical that Lucas Digne would return to the national team reckoning after becoming a regular for the Toffees during the current campaign. The France international faced heartbreak after he missed out on the summer World Cup with Les Bleus who went on to secure the global crown.
Aside from Digne, clubmate Kurt Zouma also made the French national team for the upcoming internationals after impressing for the Merseyside outfit following his season-long loan move from Chelsea. Zouma had once been tipped to become the successor to John Terry at Stamford Bridge and things have not quite worked for him since his major knee injury in early 2015.
Despite this, the Frenchman has not given up on the prospect of making a career with the west London giants and he has recently suggested that he would certainly return to his parent club when his loan deal concludes at the end of the season. Meanwhile, France are now under the pressure to perform consistently being the reigning world champions and it remains to be seen whether the young squad can showcase their dominance at Euro 2020 and the 2022 World Cup thereafter.
