World Cup - Clichy replaced by Tremoulinas in France squad

Gael Clichy has pulled out of Wednesday's friendly against Italy in Parma and has been replaced in the France squad by the uncapped Benoit Tremoulinas.

The French federation said on its website that full-back Clichy had picked up a lower back injury in Manchester City's 2-1 Premier League win against Tottenham at the weekend.
