Rabiot, who has six France caps, was placed on standby in case one of the first-choice players was hurt before the final deadline for submitting the squad on June 4 .In a change from the policy Deschamps adopted before the last World Cup and before Euro 2016, the standbys are not joining the squad at Clairefontaine. Rabiot decided the role was not for him.The sole absentee from the France 23 Wednesday was central defender Raphael Varane, part of the Real Madrid squad for the Champions League final against Liverpool in Kyiv Saturday.
