Franck Ribery included in France's final squad

France coach Didier Deschamps was pleased with his side's win over Norway in their farewell match before the World Cup, but said his side still have work to do.

France midfielder Franck Ribery has been included in the country's final 23-man squad for the 2014 World Cup.

The Bayern man's back trouble caused him to miss the 1-1 friendly draw with Paraguay on Sunday but manager Didier Deschamps has always expressed his optimism and insisted that his star man could be fit for France's opening Group E clash with Honduras on June 15.

Indeed, the only change from Deschamps' initial squad last month was Stephane Ruffier who is in for fellow goalkeeper Steve Mandanda, who cracked a vertebra in his neck while playing for club side Marseille.

Squad in full:

Goalkeepers: Mickael Landreau (Bastia), Hugo Lloris (Tottenham), Stephane Ruffier (Saint-Etienne)

Defenders: Mathieu Debuchy (Newcastle United), Lucas Digne (Paris Saint-Germain), Patrice Evra (Manchester United), Laurent Koscielny (Arsenal), Eliaquim Mangala (Porto), Bacary Sagna (Arsenal), Mamadou Sakho (Liverpool), Raphael Varane (Real Madrid)

Midfielders: Yohan Cabaye (Paris Saint-Germain), Clement Grenier (Lyon), Blaise Matuidi (Paris Saint-Germain), Rio Mavuba (Lille), Paul Pogba (Juventus), Moussa Sissoko (Newcastle United), Mathieu Valbuena (Marseille)

Forwards: Karim Benzema (Real Madrid), Olivier Giroud (Arsenal), Antoine Griezmann (Real Sociedad), Loic Remy (Newcastle United), Franck Ribery (Bayern Munich).
