Mathieu Flamini has been called up as cover by France coach Raymond Domenech amid growing concerns that Bleus captain Patrick Vieira will not be fit for UEFA EURO 2008™.
Vieira is suffering from an injury to his left thigh sustained on Friday. The Internazionale midfielder will not be fit for the opening game against Romania and Domenech will wait until the final deadline to decide whether to replace him with Flamini. 'I'm neither optimistic nor pessimistic,' said the coach. 'Just being attentive to whatever can happen and ensuring that the team is fully prepared for a section featuring four great teams. The team not at their prime at kick-off will be in trouble immediately.'
This can be seen as even more fortunate news for the Dutch after the news regarding Cannavaro.
So which Romanian Player is going to have to pull out? It`s their turn! Mutu maybe?
