Arsenal boss Wenger backing Everton striker Saha for France World Cup squad

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is backing Everton striker Louis Saha for a late World Cup call.

Saha has 18 caps for his country and played in the last World Cup but was agonisingly suspended from his country's final defeat to Italy.

And Wenger reckons Les Bleus could still benefit from the ex-Manchester United man's expertise in South Africa this summer.

"He has a chance of making the squad," said the veteran boss.

"There is a bit of congestion up there because you have two new comers like Gignac and Benzema, you have still Anelka and Henry who will be at the World Cup and that's why Saha could be one of the outsiders."
