France coach Raymond Domenech has called up Panathinaikos striker Djibril Cisse for Wednesday's friendly match against Spain.

Cisse will join his teammates at a training camp starting Monday ahead of the game against the European champions at the Stade de France, the French federation said Sunday.

Cisse hasn't played for France since a 2-0 win over Ecuador in May 2008. He has scored nine goals in 37 appearances for France.

Cisse could replace Everton striker Louis Saha who is doubtful with a slight thigh injury.
