FOOTBALL : Didier Deschamps appointed new France manager

France have named former World Cup-winning captain Didier Deschamps as their new manager, replacing Laurent Blanc who resigned after France's loss to Spain in the quarter-finals of Euro 2012.

Deschamps, 43, was manager of Juventus for one season in Serie B, and recently managed Marseille for three seasons until last week.

The former Chelsea midfielder also won the World Cup and Euro 2000 as a player.

Deschamps' first game in charge for France is set to be against South American champions Uruguay in Le Havre on 15 August.
