After earning an unexpected recall to the France squad David Trezeguet will be looking to impress coach Raymond Domenech during Wednesday’s friendly against England.
The Juventus striker won a late call-up on Sunday having been ignored by Domenech since September’s 1-0 qualifying defeat by Scotland.
Trezeguet, who has scored 34 goals in 70 games for France, was selected after Barcelona’s Thierry Henry, Lyon’s Karim Benzema and Mathieu Valbuena of Marseille were ruled out by injury.
The Juventus player, who last week admitted he did not expect to feature in the Euro 2008 squad, is likely to start against England alongside Chelsea’s Nicolas Anelka.
“I’ve played many times with David and it worked well,” Anelka told reporters. “He’s an excellent striker. If we were to be paired, that would suit me.”
