Blanc: Cabaye indispensable to Les Bleus

Published Add your comment

Head coach Laurent Blanc has hailed the impact of Newcastle midfielder Yohan Cabaye as France prepare for Saturday night's Euro 2012 quarter-final with Spain in Donetsk.

Blanc has had to field countless questions about the dressing room row which erupted among several players after the 2-0 defeat by Sweden in Kiev on Tuesday. But a big plus will be the return of Cabaye, who was rested against the Swedes after impressing in the 1-1 draw with England and 2-0 victory over Ukraine.

Blanc said: "Cabaye is indispensable in terms of how he played in the first two games in the competition, absolutely."
