Paris Saint-Germain's Adrien Rabiot at early crossroads for club and country

Paris Saint-Germain's Adrien Rabiot and Kevin Trapp were happy that their superstar teammate Neymar was able to join the club that won Coupe de France on Tuesday night, and they believe the Brazilian will stay at PSG.
Despite winning all they could domestically, Paris Saint Germain's Champions League failure still denies them elite status in Europe.

PARIS -- When France coach Didier Deschamps unveiled his 23-man World Cup squad Thursday, one of the biggest talking points was his decision to demote Paris Saint-Germain's Adrien Rabiot to the reserve list.
