France coach Didier Deschamps reveals that Manchester City defender Gael Clichy and Arsenal midfielder Abou Diaby are unlikely to be fit in time for tomorrow's World Cup qualifier against Belarus.

Manchester City defender Gael Clichy and Arsenal midfielder Abou Diaby are unlikely to be fit in time for France's home clash with Belarus tomorrow night.

Diaby scored the winner as Les Bleus opened their World Cup qualifying campaign with a 1-0 win in Finland on Friday.

"[Diaby] took a bad knock [against Finland] and won't train today," admitted France coach Didier Deschamps. "They both will struggle to make it."

France have kept clean sheets in five of their last eight matches.
