Official: France Striker Nicolas Anelka Axed From Les Bleus

France striker Nicolas Anelka has been ordered to return home, the French Football Federation (FFF) has confirmed.

The Chelsea frontman had been in doubt for the remainder of the World Cup following reports of a verbal attack on coach Raymond Domenech during half-time of Thursday's 2-0 defeat to Mexico.

Anelka missed France's training session this afternoon, which intensified rumours that he could be ditched just three days before Les Bleus' final group match.

The story is too old to be commented.

Lame shit right here, Domenech should have been the one to be axed from Les Bleus.

French team should just go home....especially after Henry doesn't get to play.
