Rennes goalkeeper Nicolas Douchez has been handed a debut call-up to the France squad by Raymond Domenech, who also confirmed the absence of Yoann Gourcuff through injury.
The playmaker picked up a thigh strain in Bordeaux's UEFA Champions League victory over Maccabi Haifa last night, and will now play no part in the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ qualifiers against the Faroe Islands and Austria.
Douchez , 29, is one of four goalkeepers in the 24-man squad. Moussa Sissoko has been named in the list for the second time, but there is no place for Loic Remy following Nice's poor run of results.
Goalkeepers: Carrasso (Bordeaux), Douchez (Rennes), Lloris (Lyon), Mandanda (Marseille)
Defenders: Abidal (Barcelona), Clichy (Arsenal), Escude (Sevilla), Evra (Manchester United), Fanni (Rennes), Gallas (Arsenal), Sagna (Arsenal), Squillaci (Sevilla)
Midfielders: Diaby (Arsenal), L Diarra (Real Madrid), A Diarra (Bordeaux), Malouda (Chelsea), Sissoko (Toulouse), Toulalan (Lyon), Ribery (Bayern Munich)
Forwards: Anelka (Chelsea), Benzema (Real Madrid), Gignac (Toulouse), Govou (Lyon), Henry (Barcelona).
