Cabaye out of France squad, replaced by Matuidi

Lille midfielder Yohan Cabaye has pulled out of France's squad for matches against Luxembourg and Croatia and will be replaced by Saint-Etienne's Blaise Matuidi.
The French Football Federation said Monday that Cabaye has a muscle injury, without giving further details.
The 23-year-old Matuidi has played only once for France, which travels to Luxembourg for a 2012 European Championship qualifier on Friday before hosting Croatia in a friendly at Stade de France four days later.
