No Coupet! Apparentely he is not sure to start with his club too, it might be a strange situation for him. But it's great to see the potential that we have for the goalkeeper, i'm sure that Carasso can come back in the french team too.
That's is a pretty promising list, imo. With Clichy/Sagna finally there. Fanni to be tested. And Mexes in defense. Ben Arfa and Gourcuff there also logically ince they will both have an important role in their respective team. Top teams of Ligue , i may add.
Now, will Raymond dare to start Boumsong over Mexes ? p Everything is possible with him.
Half-time : 1-1 Slow paced game, but what expect for an august friendly ? The only probable thing we can get out of this is that Mandanda scores some points ahead of Lloris at the moment. Two or three lethal saves. Hopefully Hugo will get his chance aswell for the second.
