Domenech to name his World Cup squad in early May

France coach Raymond Domenech will name his 23-man World Cup squad in early May, breaking with his tradition of taking a larger squad and then dropping several players after several days of training.
The French football federation announced on its Web site that Domenech will name his squad on May 2.
France, the 1998 World Cup winner and runner-up to Italy in 2006, plays Uruguay, Mexico and South Africa in Group A at the World Cup. France opens against Uruguay in Cape Town on June 11.
Prior to major competitions, Domenech traditionally took larger squads to increase competition for places but would then cut several players, as he did before the 2008 European Championship.
