King Louis of France! In-form Everton hitman ends four-year international exile

France national coach Raymond Domenech has rewarded Louis Saha's excellent form for Everton with a call-up to his squad to face Spain next week. Saha has not featured for Les Blues in over three years - the last of his 18 caps coming in France's Euro 2008 qualifying win over the Faroe Islands in October 2006.  The former Manchester United striker scored the only goal of  the game but has been overlooked by the national side ever since. King Louis: Saha has been called up to the France squad for the first time since 2006 FRANCE SQUAD Goalkeepers: Hugo Lloris, Steve Mandanda, Cedric Carrasso Defenders: Jean-Alain Boumsong, Michael Ciani, Julien Escude, Aly Cissokho , Patrice Evra, Bacary Sagna, Rod Fanni, Adil Rami. Midfielders: Lassana Diarra, Yoann Gourcuff, Moussa Sissoko, Jeremy Toulalan, Benoit Cheyrou, Florent Malouda. Forwards: Nicolas Anelka, Hatem Ben Arfa, Franck Ribery, Thierry Henry, Sidney Govou, Loic Remy, Louis Saha. However, the Everton hitman's excellent form this season has prompted theunder-fire French coach to give him another chance to impress, with thissummer's World Cup a little over three months away. Saha's career has been blighted by a number of injuries over thepast few years but he has been in devastating form for Everton thisseason, scoring 15 goals, with two of those coming in the Toffees' outstanding 3-1 win over Barclays Premier League leaders Chelseaearlier this month. The 31-year-old, who joined Everton at the beginning of last season was recently rewarded with a new two-year deal at Goodison Park. Arsenal and Manchester United defenders Bacary Sagna and Patrice Evra, and Chelsea duo Florent Malouda and Nicolas Anelka have also been included in the squad, who will host the European champions next Wednesday.   Hamstrung Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe doubtful for Everton clashAll eyes turn to the Europa League as Fulham, Everton and Liverpool prepare to hit the roadAmerican idol: Everton fans lead Facebook campaign to keep DonovanEVERTON FC
