Bacary Sagna will miss France's Euro 2012 campaign after breaking his right leg during Arsenal's 3-3 draw against Norwich City on Saturday.
The full-back fell to the ground unchallenged in the 32nd minute whilst attempting to control the ball and subsequently left the pitch on a stretcher with his leg wrapped in protective padding.
After the match, Arsenal confirmed the 29-year-old sustained a broken fibula which was similar to the injury he suffered on October 2 against Tottenham which left him sidelined for nearly four months.
"It is broken fibula, the same leg," confirmed Arsene Wenger.
"He was kicked on it, it has not happened alone. When he was kicked, he has broken the leg. The guy closed him down and walked on him. I dont know if it was deliberate or not."
The draw against Norwich City has left Arsenal uncertain over Champions League qualification with one Premier League game remaining against West Brom next Sunday.
