French footballers Franck Ribery and Karim Benzema are set to go on trial in Paris accused of paying for sex with an underage prostitute.

Both players have been under investigation for more than two years over allegations of paying Zahia Dehar, who was then 16, for sex in 2008 and 2009.

Under French law, paid sex with an individual under the age of 18 is regarded as sex with a minor.

If found guilty, they could be sentenced to three years in prison and face fines of 45,000 euros (£38,000.)

Deschamps given vote of confidence

I have total confidence in Didier Deschamps.

It will seem strange to you but I think the France team are doing better. In terms of the rankings, that may seem questionable.

Capoue wants out

Toulouse midfielder Etienne Capoue hopes to leave the club this summer in search of European football.

The France international has been linked with Arsenal and Tottenham as well as the likes of Paris St Germain and AC Milan, though coach Alain Casanova is hopeful he will stay with the Tefece.

If he [Casanova] wants to keep me, that is good.

That says that he counts on me, that he is happy with me.

But it is football. I feel it is the moment to leave, to play in big competitions.
