The heavily criticised Raymond Domenech was sharpening his axe this week, as his original 30-man provisional squad was cut to just 24. It was only last week that Domenech called up no less than 30 players to the French fold, yet not even a week has passed and six have already seen their World Cup dreams dashed.

Hatem Ben Afra, a player with a big future, was the notable exclusion, although Mickael Landreau of Lille was also sent home. The remaining four casualties were Adil Rami, Rod Fanni, Yann M’Vila and Jimmy Briand.

Both Patrick Viera and Karim Benzema were ruled out of the 2010 World Cup as Raymond Domenech opted against using either when naming his original 30-man provisional squad, raising more eyebrows back home.

With six now out of South Africa contention, Raymond Domenech needs only to make one more cut before his French squad is down to the allocated amount of 23 players. So, with a couple of weeks still left before Domenech has to officially announce his 23-man France squad, which player will receive Domenech’s final kiss of death?

Raymond Domenech will announce his final 23-man squad on 27th May before they head off for a training camp in Tunisia.
