Henry ruled out of France friendlies

PARIS - Thierry Henry has been ruled out of France's two friendlies against Nigeria and Turkey next week because of a sore knee, the French football federation said on Sunday. No replacement has been named for the 31-year-old Barcelona forward, who is France's all-time highest scorer with 48 goals from 111 caps. France play Nigeria in St Etienne on Tuesday before they take on Turkey in Lyon three days later.
