Goal.com invites you to pick your France team for the Euro 2012 qualifying match against Bosnia.
Not only does he have the problem of the defeat to bounce back from, he has serious issues in attack, where France look set to be short come kick-off. Guillaume Hoarau, Louis Saha and Loic Remy all picked up problems on Friday that will keep them out of the midweek encounter, though Karim Benzema should return. Jimmy Briand has been added to the panel.
The fresh problems come on top of a heap of other issues. Lassana Diarra and Yohan Cabaye were both in the squad but have since fallen out due to injuries, while Nicolas Anelka, who recently confirmed his international retirement, Patrice Evra and Franck Ribery are still banned by the FFF (French FA). Yoann Gourcuff serves the second of a two match ban imposed by FIFA.
Here is the available squad:
Hugo Lloris (Lyon), Steve Mandanda (Marseille), Cedric Carrasso (Bordeaux)
Bacary Sagna (Arsenal), Adil Rami (Lille), Philippe Mexes (AS Rome), Mamadou Sakho (Paris-SG), Benoit Tremoulinas (Bordeaux), Gael Clichy (Arsenal), Anthony Reveillere (Lyon)
Mathieu Valbuena (Marseille), Jeremy Menez (AS Rome), Alou Diarra (Bordeaux), Yann M'Vila (Rennes), Charles N'Zogbia (Wigan), Abou Diaby (Arsenal), Blaise Matuidi (Saint-Etienne)
Kevin Gameiro (Lorient), Karim Benzema (Real Madrid), Jimmy Briand (Lyon)
