Gallas is fit again
By 1970’s Gooner
There are good news for Arsenal coming out of the France camp prior to their next Wednesday’s crucial game against Lithuania at Beaujoire.
Domenech is set to make some changes from the team that started in their 6-0 thrashing of the Faroe Islands last Saturday and there are mixed fortunes for the Arsenal players.
Sagna is expected to be rested with Diarra taking his place; but the good news for Arsenal is that Gallas is considered fit enough to claim a place in the team at the expense of Manchester United’s Patrice Evra on the left side of the defence.
He has been out of action since August 19th when Arsenal played a 1-1 draw against Blackburn at Ewood Park.
His recovery period at that time was put at six to eight weeks with a return expected by the beginning of October.
Gallas has been participating in the training sessions and the “in house” games being played at Clairefontaine since a week ago and has been raring to go.
Domenech knows that experience will be vital in France’s next two games which they have to win to have any chance of qualifying for the finals in Austria and Switzerland.
Let’s hope that Gallas and the other Arsenal players come out of next Wednesday’s game unscathed.
According to L’Equipe Florent Malouda is expected to be reinstated in the starting 11 after he was rested due to a knee problem. He will take Rothen’s place.
