France drops Evra for Ukraine match at Euro 2012
France coach Laurent Blanc has dropped former captain Patrice
Evra and midfielder Florent Malouda for the team’s European
Championship match against Ukraine on Friday.
Gael Clichy takes Evra’s place at left back and Jeremy Menez
starts on the right wing, with Samir Nasri dropping down to right
midfield in the Group D match.
Alou Diarra keeps his place in the center of a three-man
midfield despite Yann M’Vila being available to play.
France goes into the game looking for its first win at Euro 2012
after an opening 1-1 draw with England.
