Cisse nets France recall

Djibril Cisse of Lazio has been called up by France boss Laurent Blanc for their final Euro 2012 qualifiers.

The striker was initially omitted from the set-up, but he, along with Valencia defender Jeremy Mathieu, have now been added to the squad.

The two players come in after injuries to Franck Ribery, Blaise Matuidi, Karim Benzema, Kevin Gameiro and Eric Abidal.

France are Group D leaders and will play Albania on Friday and then Bosnia-Herzegovina next Tuesday.

Cisse revealed this morning that he turned down a big money move to China over the summer in order to keep his France ambitions alive.
