Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri was the most notable omission from France coach Didier Deschamps' 23-man World Cup squad.
Nasri, who has been a key man in City's successful bid to be crowned Barclays Premier League champions, was axed from Deschamps' last squad in February for a friendly against Holland and he has not been included for Brazil.
Paris St Germain midfielder Yohan Cabaye was selected along with Newcastle's Moussa Sissoko, while Arsenal's Olivier Giroud is named up front along with Real Madrid star Karim Benzema and Magpies forward Loic Remy.
Tottenham's Hugo Lloris was picked along with Marseille's Steve Mandanda and Bastia's Mickael Landreau in goal, while Newcastle are represented again in defence through Mathieu Debuchy, with Arsenal's Laurent Koscielny and Bacary Sagna also selected.
Manchester United left-back Patrice Evra will compete in his second World Cup with Liverpool's Mamadou Sakho also picked in defence, while Porto's Eliaquim Mangala and PSG's Lucas Digne were among those included, but there was no place for Manchester City left-back Gael Clichy.
Deschamps also listed seven replacements which included Southampton midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin and St Etienne's Loic Perrin.
Goalkeepers: Mickael Landreau (Bastia), Hugo Lloris (Tottenham), Steve Mandanda (Marseille)
