Liverpool's Cissokho eyeing France World Cup place

Liverpool’s on-loan defender Aly Cissokho is hoping to win a place in the France squad for the summer’s World Cup, ESPN has reported.

The 26-year-old moved to Anfield on a season-long loan from Valencia in the summer transfer window but has struggled to win a regular place under Brendan Rodgers, making nine appearances in a spell disrupted by injury.

Cissokho has one international cap to his name - won in 2010 in a friendly against Norway - when a Lyon player, but failed to gain recognition from Les Bleus upon moving to La Liga. Gael Clichy and Patrice Evra are the left-backs most often called on by France Coach Didier Deschamps, but Cissokho hopes to dislodge one of the pair by the time Deschamps names his squad for the tournament.

The World Cup is something special,” Cissokho told RMC, a French radio station. “You have to give yourself every chance with your club to try and go there. Evra is a step ahead, but a second will be needed to replace him.

Gael has often been called up,” Cissokho continued. “But you never know. By staying focused in matches and in training, by taking care not to get injured, I can show to the coach that I could have a place. I believe I can do it, of course.
