Domenech to name France squad on May 18

April 6, 2008

PARIS, April 6 (Reuters) - France coach Raymond Domenech will name his Euro 2008 squad on May 18, a French football federation (FFF) spokesman said on Sunday.

Domenech is expected to name more than the mandatory 23 players and reduce the list later because some competitions, notably the French Cup, the final of which is on May 24, will not be over by then.

France have been drawn with Italy, the Netherlands and Romania in Group C the June 7-29 tournament in Austria and Switzerland.
