France Olympic squad to be disclosed on the 22nd of May

The French Division 1 will finish on the 3rd of June with a probable  title decider between the top 2 teams Juvisy and Lyon. Then the preparation period will start and there will be 3 friendlies to warm-up for the tournament :

04/07 : France – Roumania in Orléans
11/07 : France – Russia in Beauvais
20/07 : France – Japan, Stade Charléty in Paris

I don’t think there will be any surprise in the squad as Bruno Bini has called up 21 players in 2012 and the 18 players should be picked from the following (except for injuries or unusual incidents) :

G (3) : Deville, Bouhaddi (both OL), Phillipe (Montpellier)
D (8 ) : Bompastor, Franco, Georges, Viguier, Renard ( all OL), Boulleau (PSG), Gadea, Meilleroux (Montpellier)
M (7) : Abily, Necib (both OL) ,Soubeyrand, Thiney ( both Juvisy), Bussaglia (PSG), Catala (St-Etienne), Makanza (Fribourg),
F(3) : Le Sommer, Thomis (both OL), Delie ( Montpellier)

The Olympic tournament will see France take on the USA Glasgow 25/07, North Korea 28/07 and Colombia 31/07 with the opener anticipated to be one of the most attractive tie of the group games stage.
