Arsenal`s Sagna breaks leg in Tottenham defeat
Paris: Arsenal right back Bacary Sagna broke his leg in the 2-1 defeat at Tottenham Hotspur and could miss three months, the French Football Federation said on Sunday as he was replaced in France`s Euro 2012 qualifying squad by Lille`s Mathieu Debuchy.
"The France team doctor, Fabrice Bryand, was informed by his Arsenal colleague of an unstable fracture to Bacary Sagna`s right fibula," a FFF statement said.
"The defender will be operated on tomorrow and is expected to be out for around three months. Laurent Blanc has therefore called up Lille`s Mathieu Debuchy."
France host Albania on Friday and Bosnia on October 11 as they look to wrap up qualification in the final two games.
Sagna`s injury is another blow for Arsenal, who are in the unaccustomed position of 15th in the Premier League having sold leading midfielders Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri in August.
