Lacazette, 27, has scored 15 goals in 39 appearances for the Gunners this term and was tipped for a call-up ahead of Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud.

However, he was overlooked by Deschamps and though Emery respects his opinion, the Spaniard says its only a matter of time before the striker is recalled.
