France midfielder Lassana Diarra believes it would be a mistake to get rid of under-fire coach Raymond Domenech, despite the national team´s disappointing showing at Euro 2008.

The French Football Federation are set to announce on Thursday whether they will keep faith with Domenech, who is under pressure after Les Bleus finished bottom of their group at the Euros and scored just one goal in three games.

But Diarra reckons continuity is the best course of action ahead and said: "He knows the youngsters perfectly, he understands them. Together we are going to try to qualify for the World Cup and fight to win it."
