Joe Hart and James Milner have been selected in the England squad to face Scotland at Wembley on Wednesday.
The City pair have featured regularly for the Three Lions under Roy Hodgson, and both won starting berths in England’s last outing, a 2-2 draw against Brazil in the Maracana Stadium in June.
This is the first time that the two teams have met since 1999, when England won 2-1 on aggregate over two games to earn qualification for Euro 2000, and forms part of the FA’s 150th anniversary celebrations.
It means that Samir will have his first chance to play for Les Bleus since Euro 2012.
"Last season Nasri was not really eligible because he was injured and did not play a lot. He has to understand that he is eligible," said France Head Coach Didier Deschamps.
Vincent Kompany has been named in that Belgium squad which will provide the opposition.
Aleksandar Kolarov will join up with Serbia for their exhibition against Colombia in Barcelona, while Stevan Jovetic has got the nod for Montenegro who take on Belarus and Pablo Zabaleta will be hoping to feature for Argentina against Italy in Rome.
EDS midfielder Emyr Huws has also been called up for Wales u21s for their UEFA qualifying game against Finland at Bangor City's BookPeople Stadium.
