Evra and Ribéry return for France

France coach Laurent Blanc has included Patrice Evra and Franck Ribéry in his squad for next Friday's Euro 2012 qualifier in Luxembourg, while also recalling the Arsenal midfielder Samir Nasri.

Captain Evra was banned for five games and Ribéry for three after France players refused to train during last year's ill-fated World Cup campaign.
