Arsenal fullback Gael Clichy is in no rush to break into the senior France team.

The 22-year-old is happy to bide his time and points out he has been in a similar situation before at club level.

"It's a dream to play for the national team," he said.

"I was understudy to Ashley Cole for four or five years at Arsenal, so I can wait for the national team. I'm sure it will come but I will just have to be patient."
