Five France internationals to face disciplinary committee over behaviour during World Cup

Top stars singled out after World Cup disaster...
Chelsea and Manchester United stars Nicolas Anelka and Patrice Evra are two of the French Internationals being called up to face The French Football Federation to discuss the behaviour which led to France’s 2010 World Cup exit.

Eric Abidal, Jeremy Toulalan and Franck Ribery are the other big names who will appear at the hearing, with the remaining players initially exempt from discussions.

During the 2010 World Cup the French squad went on strike after Chelsea striker Anelka was sent home by then manager Raymond Domenech following a dressing room disagreement.

Les Bleus' demise caused them to crash out of the competition and new coach Laurent Blanc decided to suspend all 23 members of the squad for the friendly against Norway next week.

The French Football Federation has stated that the behaviour of other players may also be scrutinised.

On their official website, a statement read: “The Federeal Commission for Discipline [may] during these investigations, if deemed appropriate, bring other players before it.”
