Daniel Moreira has expressed his delight at being called into Raymond Domenech's squad for France's World Cup qualifying double-header.

Moreira has been drafted in for the games against Republic of Ireland and Cyprus and has declared he will 'work like a dog' if given the opportunity.

The 27-year-old has replaced Barcelona ace Ludovic Giuly, who has withdrawn from the squad after an MRI scan revealed he has a strained thigh muscle.

Toulouse midfielder Moreira has vowed to prove his worth, saying: "This call is a reward and is hugely satisfying considering the season I am having with my club.

"It is probably the best time of my career. I have worked hard with Toulouse and I am at my best.

"I will try to prove I belong to Les Bleus, even if I only play 15 minutes I will work like a dog."
