No Thierry for Naija fans

I'm hearing that Thierry Henry has been ruled out of France's two friendlies against Nigeria and Turkey. France play Nigeria in St Etienne tomorrow before they take on Turkey in Lyon three days later.

Nigerians would have loved to see the Champions' League winner against their team.

The French football federation announced on Sunday that the Barcelona striker has a sore knee. No replacement has been named for the 31-year-old forward, who is France's all-time highest scorer with 48 goals from 111 caps.
