Perrin replaces Sakho in France squad

PARIS (AP) -- Saint-Etienne defender Loic Perrin could make his France debut after being selected for upcoming friendly matches against Germany and England as a replacement for the injured Mamadou Sakho.

Sakho picked up a right knee injury while playing for Liverpool in the Premier League over the weekend, leading France coach Didier Deschamps to call up Perrin, 30.

France, which hosts next year's European Championship, plays Germany at home on Friday then England at Wembley on Nov. 17.
