Malouda: Laid low
Chelsea winger Florent Malouda has pulled out of the France squad to face Ukraine next week.
Malouda is struggling with a knee injury and he will not make the trip to Ukraine.
France coach Raymond Domenech confirmed he has no other injury worries to contend with for France's final qualifier.
"Everybody is fit but Florent Malouda, who has left the training camp," said Domenech.
France have already qualified for Euro 2008 following Italy's 2-1 win over Scotland on Saturday.
Chelsea will be hoping the injury to Malouda is not too serious and that he will be fit to tackle Derby next weekend.
