[qoute]Robert Pires has spoken of his disappointment at being left out by France coach Raymond Domenech ahead of the friendly with Sweden.
The Arsenal winger had been expecting a recall following a row with the coach and some controversy caused by his decision to conduct a television
interview using his own personal sponsors rather than the official backers of Les Bleus.
"When he didn't call me for the match against Poland, arguing about sport choices, I admitted it was because my performances were not good at that
time," Pires affirmed.
