Henry recalled by France coach Domenech
Thierry Henry has been recalled to the France squad for the World Cup doubleheader against Romania and Serbia but there was still no place for Patrick Vieira.
Barcelona striker Henry missed Les Bleus' 1-0 win against the Faroe Islands earlier this month due to an Achilles injury but is now fit ahead of the start of the new La Liga season.
France coach Raymond Domenech has been true to his word with Vieira after stating he would only recall the former Arsenal midfielder if he played more games.
Vieira started Inter Milan's 1-1 draw with Bari at the weekend but was taken off at half-time with coach Jose Mourinho opting instead for the more offensive-minded Ricardo Quaresma.
France hosts Romania at the Stade de France on September 5 before going to Serbia four days later.
Domenech's side are currently second in Group Seven, five points behind Serbia, but they have played a game less.
