So Abidal out. Will it open the door to Evra's return ? Benzema is on fire at the moment...

Glad to see Ribery back in the team...

Ribery apologizes for last summers debacle.

All due repect to Luxembourg, this should be straight forward for les bleus.

True, though there is a good possibility of Blanc playing them at the same time if thats what your reffering to.

Also wanted to mention about Loic Remy, i'm starting to take a liking to this player. He's starting to show his potential this season with Marselle, an exciting player and hopefully keeps improving.

From the training, L'equipe guess is : Lloris - Sagna, Rami, Mexčs, Evra - Gourcuff, M'Vila - Ribéry, Nasri, Malouda - Benzema









Gourcuff is so depressed that he doesn't shave anymore ?

Thanx fo the pics Fobal.

I guess Ribery will partner Benzema up front, as for Gourcuff he's very fortunate to get a call up this time around as he's been less than impressive this season with Lyon.

Yeah so far Blanc want to keep more or less the same group of players. Players he trust and he knows like Gourcuff and Alou Diarra. Even if thoses two had up and down theses last most.

I am happy if M'Vila plays. France won't start with a pure defensive midfielder, but Yann use to play quick and smart in his passing. It will be uselfull if France want to overpace Luxemburg. We should see creativity and dribble with Ribéry, Nasri too. Hope we will able to finish. Benzema is probably much more confident too.

I am awaiting Evra finally to step up too.

Just Fontaine went to visit les Bleus at Clairefontaine :



JusteFontaine said he was born too soon. With a brand like Nike as jersey sponsor the famous quote "Just do it" would have taken a new meaning. And Fontaine would have say : "I did it"...

Good to see Fontaine

As for M'vila, i have only seen him on a limited basis and his last game against Lyon was not one of his better ones. At time's his technique lets him down more often than not but there's lots of room for improvment.

I am not good at looking for this, maybe Atdhe.net ?

Anyway L'Equipe was correct about the line up :

Code:
Lloris Sagna, Rami, Mexčs, Evra M'Vila, Gourcuff Ribéry, Nasri, Malouda Benzema

The shirt is weird, it looks like it has a zipper just below the neck. Looks nice though.

La Juve? Lasciamo perdere.
