France captain Patrick Vieira will make the final decision on whether he plays in Saturday´s Euro 2008 qualifier against Italy.

The midfielder has missed both of Internazionale´s Serie A matches this season with a hamstring injury, but France coach Raymond Domenech is desperate to have him back for the meeting with the world champions.

Domenech told Gazzetta dello Sport: "Vieira´s problem is disappearing. Patrick is better but it will be down to him whether or not he plays."
