Raymond DOMENECH, France national team manager, is due to name on Thursday the squad for their upcoming match against Greece.
Now the rumours about Gonzalo HIGUAIN being in DOMENECH’s radar are no longer rumours as the young River Plate forward is believed to be included on a preliminary list ahead of Thursday call up.
L’Equipe, the popular French newspaper, have published on their website a piece of news about this and you can read it here: http://www.lequipe.fr/Football/20061105_211108Dev.html

You can also watch him in Spanish and saying that his priority is trying to win the league with River Plate. http://www.ole.com.ar
I wouldn’t want to be on his shoes right now as he is facing a decision that could hunt him down forever if he is not happy with it.
I guess we’re gonna have to keep waiting and I wish DOMENECH, BASILE and the press can leave him alone while he gives this thing the time to think it properly and get to a final and very personal decision.
And we’ll see which side of the road will he be on February 7th, 2007 when Argentina and France will meet up in Paris for a friendly match.
