Chantome replaces Diarra in France squad

"Anzhi Makachkala informed the French staff on Sunday that Lassana Diarra had been suffering a back injury... preventing him from travelling by plane for a few days," the French Federation said in a statement on its website on Sunday.

The 25-year-old Chantome, who has spent his whole career at PSG, has never played for France.
