France will have to do without central defenders Lilian Thuram and William Gallas for Wednesday´s full and A team friendly internationals with Slovakia.

Gallas and Thuram would have both almost certainly been in the senior side although coach Raymond Domenech had not yet disclosed which players would feature in the full match and which in the A team.

Barcelona defender Thuram, 35, has withdrawn with an ankle injury while 30-year-old Gallas sustained a groin injury playing for Arsenal at the weekend.
