Flamini reveals Vieira hopes

Mathieu Flamini hopes Patrick Vieira will be fit for Euro 2008 despite the fact he stands in line to replace the France captain.

The former Arsenal midfielder, who recently completed a move to AC Milan, has been called up to train with France´s 23-man squad and will come in as a replacement should Vieira be forced out of the tournament with a left thigh injury.

"I hope that Patrick Vieira recovers and is ready for Euro 2008," he told French newspaper L´Equipe. "He´s an important player for the team, I hope he´ll be able to play these European Championships."
