Louis Saha included in France squad to face Germany

The new Tottenham signing returns to Les Bleus as the 1998 World Cup winners prepare for a difficult test against the Germans next week
France head coach Laurent Blanc has named his 23-man squad for Wednesday's friendly against Germany at the Weserstadion.

Les Bleus will have a much-changed side in Germany as Loic Remy, Karim Benzema, Lassana Diarra and Abou Diaby have all been ruled out of the match because of injury.

Morgan Amalfitano has earned his first call-up after impressing for Olympique de Marseille since arriving at the club in the summer.

Tottenham striker Louis Saha makes a return to the France set-up almost two years after his last appearance, in the Euro 2012 qualifier against Belarus.

France, who finished at the top of their Euro 2012 qualifying group, will meet Ukraine, Sweden and England in the European Championships this summer.
