Zinedine Zidane is the latest player to withdraw from France’s squad to face Holland on Wednesday.

Zidane has pulled out with a groin injury. France had already lost Arsenal pair Robert Pires (achilles) and Patrick Vieira (knee) and Lyon striker Steve Marlet. Striker Sidney Govou and midfield players Beno”t Pedretti and Bruno Cheyrou have all been called up.

Meanwhile, Holland coach Dick Advocaat will be without defenders Jaap Stam and Frank de Boer. Full-back Wilfred Bouma is another doubt for the Dutch, with a back injury.
