Dusautoir left out

PARIS: Captain Thierry Dusautoir has been left out of France’s 25-man squad for their first World Cup warm-up match after picking up a knee injury during training earlier this week. France play the first of their three preparation matches for the tournament on August 15 against England at Twickenham. Dusautoir is expected to be fit when the teams face again a week later at the Stade de France. The World Cup is on September 18.
