Vieira fit to stay with France

Published Add your comment

France captain Patrick Vieira will remain with the France squad for the rest of Euro 2008 after winning his fitness battle.

The Internazionale midfielder´s participation in the tournament in Austria and Switzerland had been in jeopardy after he sustained a small tear in his left thigh in training on May 30.

He was immediately ruled out of Les Bleus´ tournament opener, against Romania on Monday, but was hopeful he could play a part in France´s last two group games - against Holland and Italy.
