Southampton’s Morgan Schneiderlin reacts to France’s win against Spain

Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin is delighted with France’s narrow 1-0 home win against Spain in a friendly international on Thursday.

Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin seems to have made himself a regular in the France national squad.

The 24-year-old made his debut for Les Blues just before the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, but he featured in the tournament and helped his country reached the quarter-finals.

And then on Thursday, Schneiderlin took to the pitch for France against Spain at home in their first international match since the gala summer event.

The former Strasbourg player did not start the friendly encounter at Stade de France against the 2008 and 2012 European champions, but came on for Moussa Sissoko with 12 minutes of normal time remaining.

The game ended in a 1-0 victory for Didier Deschamp’s side, and Schneiderlin was overjoyed with the final result. The Saints star took to social networking site Twitter on Friday to express his delight and wrote: ‘Good win last night against the Spanish! Thank you everyone!’

France are back in action on Sunday when they take on Serbia in Belgrade in another friendly match.
