France release Saha back to Everton with injury concerns

Louis Saha faces a race against time to be fit for Everton's showdown with former club Manchester United on Saturday, reports the Liverpool Daily Post. Saha limped out of France's shock 1-0 Euro 2012 qualifying defeat at home to Belarus on Friday after suffering a right calf strain.

The 31-year-old, who was making his first international appearance in four years, had only emerged as a 69th-minute substitute before being forced off just 10 minutes later.

Saha will now undergo intensive treatment at Finch Farm with Everton manager David Moyes sweating on the fitness of the forward ahead of Premier League battle being resumed with the visit of United on Saturday morning.
