PARIS (AP) - France coach Raymond Domenech is expected to use next week's friendly against Uruguay to test out several new players.

Domenech hinted that he will pick some new players in Thursday's squad for the Nov. 19 match at Stade de France.

"It's the time to look at players who have not yet been in the French team yet, but have been showing things for the past few weeks, or months, and in some cases even years," Domenech said Monday on the French football federation's Web site.

"You have to expand the possibilities."

Domenech added that "there are others who can knock on the door" and that "it could be a chance to take a look" at them against Uruguay because there is nothing at stake.
I know Douchez is on the pre list according to Ouest-France newspaper. But i am curious to see Domenech's pick.

PREVIEW - France face attacking dilemma


PARIS, Nov 18 (Reuters) - Nicolas Anelka's goalscoring prowess in the Premier League has given coach Raymond Domenech another headache before France host Uruguay in a friendly on Wednesday (2000).

The Chelsea striker is top scorer in England with 12 goals after netting seven in his last three outings.

Anelka also played a crucial role as a half-time substitute when France defeated Serbia 2-1 in September to stay alive in World Cup qualifying Group Seven.

Domenech is a big fan of Thierry Henry and France's all-time top scorer should not worry about his place in the new team the coach is trying to build. Neither should inspirational forward Franck Ribery.

That makes the competition even stiffer for other attacking players such as Anelka, Ligue 1 top scorer Karim Benzema or playmakers Yoann Gourcuff, Samir Nasri and Hatem Ben Arfa, who has not even been called up this time.

There is also 30-year-old newcomer Steve Savidan from low-key Caen, who can expect to play a part in Wednesday's friendly.

"He is one of the players we want to see at the highest level. You never know until you try. We want to see what he can do, it's up to him to show us something," Domenech told reporters last week.


INJURY-PLAGUED DEFENCE

Two years after Zinedine Zidane retired, Domenech has still to find the right balance in a squad with plenty of top-level forwards but few first class defenders.

France's search for a reliable back four has again been plagued with injuries before Wednesday's friendly.

Julien Escude and Bakary Sagna pulled out on Monday while Eric Abidal, Willy Sagnol and Francois Clerc are also injured.

However, captain Patrick Vieira should return in midfield for the first time since a friendly in Spain in February after recovering from various injuries.

Domenech narrowly escaped the axe after France's first round exit at the Euro finals and a poor start to their World Cup qualifying campaign.

He said Wednesday's friendly, his first game in charge since being reconfirmed as coach last month, and another against Argentina in February should help France move forward.

"We must use this game to carry on building a new team to qualify for the World Cup and to prepare for our two games against Lithuania which will be a turning point in the qualifying campaign," Domenech said last week.

"The fans see, just like I do, that something is starting to come up from this team, that something is being built," he added on the French federation website (www.fff.fr).

Third-placed France visit and then host second-placed Lithuania in late March and early April in World Cup qualifying Group Seven. (Writing by Bertrand Boucey, editing by Alan Baldwin)

There was a training in this end of afternoon : What leads to this, according to L'Equipe.fr

Code:
Lloris Fanni Mexès Gallas Evra Vieira Toulalan Ribéry Gourcuff Henry Anelka
I am quite pleased to be honest, Lloris will get his chance, Mexes another one and we will see what level got Vieira if he doesn't injured himself in the warming up. Anelka is soooo obvious while i believe Benzema will sub Henry at one moment and Savidan, Anelka in the last third 30'. That's my bet. I will watch Fanni performance closely of course.

The starting line-up is effectively what l'Equipe expected.

France : Lloris - Fanni, Mexès, Gallas, Evra - Vieira, Toulalan - Ribéry, Gourcuff, Henry - Anelka.

Uruguay : Carini - Silva, Godin, Lugano, Caceres - M. Pereira, Gargano, A. Pereira, Rodriguez - Suarez, Forlan

Yes it would be cool to see Savidan. May his carrier be longer than Jurietti's one! (5 seconds?)

For once they didn't put the micro near Domenech for La marseillaise!

It's great to see Vieira again with the blue jersey.
Gourcuff is starting well.
