FC Sevilla defender Julien Escude and Bolton Wanderers striker Nicolas Anelka have been ruled out of France´s Euro 2008 qualifier against Lithuania on Wednesday.

A brief statement on the French Football Federation´s official website said only that the injured players "left Clairefontaine and the French football team on Monday morning and would therefore be absent for Les Bleus´ penultimate qualifying match."

Anelka, 28, has 42 caps to his name and 11 goals - including the opener in France´s 6-0 demolition of the Faroe Islands on Saturday.
