France vs Mexico – teams announced
Malouda gets the nod, Henry gets another shrug.
After a rather bizarre start to the tournament, which found Malouda being dragged away from Domenech and left out against Uruguay, France will be hoping that things go more smoothly against Mexico.
Malouda – after impressing as a substitute in the opening match – has been restored to the side, and has odds of 9/1 to open the scoring.
Henry, meanwhile, will have to make do with a spot on the bench again.
The confirmed starting line ups are:
France: Hugo Lloris; Bacary Sagna, Eric Abidal, William Gallas, Patrice Evra; Jeremy Toulalan, Abou Diaby; Florent Malouda, Franck Ribery, Sidney Govou; Nicolas Anelka.
Mexico: Oscar Perez; Efrain Juarez, Rafael Marquez, Francisco Rodriguez, Carlos Salcido, Gerardo Torrado, Hector Moreno, Ricardo Osorio, Giovani Dos Santos, Guillermo Franco, Carlos Vela.
