Mendy: I'm at full power and ready for World Cup

France defender Benjamin Mendy insisted he would be at "full power" for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

Mendy, 23, returned from a serious knee injury for Manchester City in April, meaning he has played just seven games this season.

But the four-time France international believes he will be ready for the World Cup, which begins in mid-June, if he is picked.

"I'll do like everyone else and try to get as much playing time as possible," Mendy told SFR Sport.

"Physically and mentally, I'm at full power and I'm ready to go to Russia."

France will face Australia, Peru and Denmark in Group C at the World Cup.
