Trezeguet replaces Benzema in French squad

24 March 2008 13:47

PARIS (AFP) - Juventus striker David Trezeguet has been called into the French squad for the friendlies against England and Mali on Tuesday and Wednesday replacing the injured Karim Benzema.

It will be his first appearance in the squad since the upset 1-0 loss to Scotland in a Euro 2008 qualifier in Paris in September.

His recall was unexpected as he had said after being left out of the original 39-strong squad for the two games that there was a lack of confidence between himself and coach Raymond Domenech.

Benzema, the rising star of French football, twisted his left knee in the first half of Lyon's league game against Paris St Germain on Sunday which the champions won 4-2.

It was later announced that Benzema would be absent for between two to three weeks, though, he will undergo a further scan next week to reassess the damage.
