PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Arsenal's star centre-back William Saliba has been warned that things won't be the same for France as they are for his club. The 21-year-old earned a call-up to Didier Deschamps' 26-man squad for the World Cup and Les Bleus start their defence of the world crown on Tuesday night against Australia. Having previously not played a game for the Gunners Saliba has already become one of Mikel Arteta's most important players after taking quickly to life in the Premier League. He's now played all 14 matches, only being subbed off in one game.

This doesn't necessarily mean that fortunes will transfer straight into the national team though, and France World Cup winner Bixente Lizarazu has warned him not to expect to start in Qatar. He said, "He has developed extremely well over the past few months and he deserves a place in central defence for the Gunners. “Now he will not start the World Cup as a regular player, but you never know what will happen afterwards. “So far he has used his chance with the Equipe Tricolore during his deployment times.

. On the other hand, he certainly has a lot of competition from Liverpool's Ibrahima Konate and Bayern's Dayot Upamecano." Saliba only made his debut in March but has played seven times for Deschamps since then. He's played in all but one of the matches available to him in that time but only started four. With Presnel Kimpembe out injured there is an added opportunity, but Lizarazu doesn't see Deschamps playing with a three-man defence. “In my opinion, the back four is the best system,” he added. “The French national team needs more self-confidence and better automatisms after the Nations League went badly. “It will be easier to show the World Cup face from 2018 again with a back four, because with this tactic the French are more stable, more balanced and the automatisms simply work better. This is how France became world champions in 1998 and 2018.” READ NEXT: Arsenal World Cup latest with Saka's Golden Boot surprise, Saliba blow and Turner denied by Bale Mikel Arteta wants Real Madrid star for free as Liverpool set to rival Arsenal for PL star Arsenal at the World Cup today as William Saliba, Marcus Thuram and Hirving Lozano all in action Arsenal star Bukayo Saka given England World Cup advice amid flattering Arjen Robben comparison Arsenal news and transfers LIVE: Latest news, rumours and gossip from the Emirates Stadium
