Payet unsure over Euro 2016 place


Dimitri Payet does not know whether he has done enough to convince Didier Deschamps that he deserves a place in the France squad for Euro 2016.

Payet has impressed in his debut season in the Premier League and he was rewarded with a call-up to the France squad for the recent international break.

After scoring a superb free-kick in his side's 4-2 victory over Russia at the Stade de France< Payet has been tipped to be included in Deschamps' squad for the European Championships, but the West Ham player is taking nothing for granted.

“It is up to the coach to judge. I have tried, as I do in every game, to contribute something. It was a positive performance, I am pleased with it," Payet said.

“I am relaxed, as I have been since the start of the season. I am working hard and being efficient with my club.”

There was double cause for celebration for Payet as he scored on his 29th birthday and he took the opportunity to thank his family and team-mates.

"Playing in a match, let alone scoring, on your birthday is something that does not happen often,” he said.

"It has been a good season, so far. In England, I have put myself in the best conditions to flourish. Today, I want to thank my club teammates, my national team and my supporters, who show me a lot of love."
