well, i dont think giuly will be sorely missed as well. yea, he had a great campaign last year but who is he in french squad? mediocrity. not even a definite starter. besides, imo he cant shire with bunch of stars around him.

Well as it is Cisse may very well be missed because this morning I read that Trezeguet is a doubt. Who else is there for France besides Henry? Saha, Wiltord and who?
Good point. But I think he could be very useful even if Trez was fit. As you said France don't really have many good options in attack and Cisse has had a great season and has shown he could be the future of the team. Given the chance and the necessary support I'm sure he would prove his worth.
I miss Mexes in the France squad. Why isn't he included? Too inexperienced? He's the future and currently the best French defender around. Pairing Gallas with Desailly instead of him is a joke.:groan:
And not just Mexes. It's true that France have two top quality left backs in the squad (Silvestre, Lizarazu) but Patrice Evra had a phenomenal season and was selected as Ligue 1's Young Player of the Year.
I just don't get some of these NT coaches :undecide: It's ridiculous that Gilardino is at home as well.
