Bacary Sagna has suffered a broken leg and is out for Euro 2012, as well as Arsenal's season finale.

Arsenal fullback Bacary Sagna has suffered a broken fibula, and will not be available for selection for France at Euro 2012. He would have been in contention to start at right back for Les Bleus, and was a virtual lock to make the squad. The injury was suffered in the first half of Arsenal's 3-3 draw with Norwich City on Saturday, in which he was replaced by Francis Coquelin in the 33rd minute.

Sagna had broken his leg previously this season, against Tottenham Hotspur, and recently made a comeback to the lineup. Sadly, the injury he suffered on Saturday was to the exact same bone that was broken in his previous injury. Arsenal will likely need a win in their final Premier League game to clinch a top four position, depending on Sunday's league results, and they will have to get it without their first choice right back.

Arsenal's final game of the season is away to West Bromwich Albion on Saturday, May 12.
