Player facts of France
font size    

France will meet Italy in the 2006 World Cup final on Sunday in Berlin. Following are the player facts of France.

Forward Louis Saha is suspended for the 2006 World Cup final. In 2002, Germany's Michael Ballack was the last player to be suspended for a World Cup final.

Goalkeeper Fabien Barthez, defender William Gallas, midfielder Claude Makelele, defender Willy Sagnol and defender Lilian Thuram have played every minute of every match for France so far.

Striker Thierry Henry scored his sixth World Cup goal against Brazil, surpassing Platini on the World Cup top scorer list for France.

Henry now only trails France's top scorer Just Fontaine, who netted 13 at the 1958 finals.

If Barthez keeps a clean sheet against Italy, he will break the World Cup record for most cleans sheets by a goalkeeper.

He now shares this record with Peter Shilton, who kept 10 clean sheets between 1982 and 1990.
