David Trezeguet and Gael Clichy have been left out of the provisional France squad for Euro 2008.
France coach Raymond Domenech has named his 30-man squad for next month's finals in Austria and Switzerland with the deadline for the final 23-man squad on 28th May.
Juventus hit-man Trezeguet has been omitted after a much-publicised bust-up with Domenech last year.
