Bakary Sagna looks set to start for France tomorrow against the Faroe Islands in Thorshavn.
This follows some excellent performances for Arsenal after his recent move from Auxerre in the summer.
Another new Arsenal signing Lassana Diarra has been filling in for this position for France.
He had a good game against Scotland but Domenech seems set to replace him having been impressed by Sagna’s eloquent performances for Arsenal.
Only victories will do for France in their remaining games in their group now if they are to maximize their chances for qualification to the finals of Euro 2008.
And Sagna’s attacking capabilities from the right may prove useful in France’s pursuit of goals.
Acording to L’equipe Gallas has been participating in the training sessions and the “in house” games being played at Clairefontaine.
It is not expected however that he is fit enough to be able to start. He has after all not played a competitive game since his injury at Ewood Park on 19th August.
Henry and surprisingly Karim Benzema are expected to be the front two pairing with Anelka on the bench.
