Everton striker Saha staying grounded over France recall

Everton striker Louis Saha isn't getting carried away with his return to the France squad.

Saha's three-year exile from international football ended yesterday when he was named in the squad to face Spain.

The Everton hitman, 31, has bounced back from a horror run of injuries to net 15 goals this term.

But 18-cap Saha is not getting carried away.

He said: "Of course it's good to be in the list. I'm really happy. But after that, you have to play. Then you have to prove yourself. Finally, you have to stay.

"Before thinking about the national team, I thought above all about playing again, because I was missing the pitch. All I want is to make it fun.

"Look, I'm happy, but I went through too many tests to get as carried away as I did in the past.

"However, being there is still great!"
