PARIS, Sept 3 (Reuters) - Midfielder Clement Grenier has pulled out of the France squad before Friday's World Cup Group I qualifier against Georgia because of a left thigh injury, the French federation (FFF) said on Tuesday.
"Clement Grenier...has not recovered enough from the harmstring problem he suffered in the (Champions League playoff) game against Real Sociedad with his club Olympique Lyonnais," the FFF said on their website (www.fff.fr).
France, who trail leaders Spain by one point, visit Georgia on Friday and Belarus four days later. They host Finland for the final match next month. (Reporting by Gregory Blachier; Editing by John Mehaffey)
