Gunners duo get France nod


Arsenal duo Mikael Silvestre and Samir Nasri have both been recalled to the France squad for the friendly against Uruguay.

Silvestre has played his way back into France coach Raymond Domenech’s squad after impressing for the Gunners since arriving from Manchester United in the summer.

It is the defender’s first call up to the squad since the World Cup in 2006, while Nasri is back in the squad following a two-game absence through injury.

Fellow Gunners Gael Clichy, Bakary Sagna and William Gallas have also been included in the 23-man squad.
