Laurent Koscielny has been withdrawn from the France squad to face Uruguay in a meaningless friendly ahead of the start to the new Premier League season this Saturday.


As football punters continue to shake their heads at these poorly timed international friendlies, the participants seem to be dropping like flies.


FIFA.com claim the French defender has been sent home from the training camp after test pointed to a problem with the centre back`s calf.


Hopefully this is just a preventative measure and Kos will take to the field on Saturday in our season opener vs Sunderland.
