NiaK names France ESEC squad
France captain Jérome "NiaK" Sudries has revealed which players he has called up for the upcoming European Championship.
Last year marked France's first appearance at the European Championship, where they finished in second place after losing to Denmark 3-1 in the grand final in Belgrade, Serbia.
Due to their success, this year's French line-up remains largely the same, though Edouard "SmithZz" Dubourdeaux, who was part of the team that played in the grand final, and Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt, who earlier this week ruled himself out of the team, are notable absences.
