Thuram and Toulalan out of Argentina match
SAINT-GRATIEN, France, Feb 6 (Reuters) - Defender Lilian Thuram and midfielder Jeremy Toulalan are out of France's friendly against Argentina in Paris on Wednesday.
Both were missing when coach Raymond Domenech unveiled his starting team on Tuesday. Toulalan is sidelined with a thigh injury while Thuram is nursing a sore left calf.
In the absence of Thuram, Olympique Lyon's Sebastien Squillaci will partner the unexperienced Julien Escude of Sevilla in central defence.
Lyon left back Eric Abidal, who suffered a pain in his chest after the Ligue 1 match at Troyes at the weekend, is fit to play.
Team: Gregory Coupet; Willy Sagnol, Sebastien Squillaci, Julien Escude, Eric Abidal; Franck Ribery, Patrick Vieira, Claude Makelele, Florent Malouda; Thierry Henry, David Trezeguet
