Former France captain Didier Deschamps has revealed his concerns about the physical condition of centre-back Lilian Thuram leading into Euro 2008.

Thuram has been the rock of France´s defence for a number of years now, and on the whole has had an impressive qualifying campaign as Les Bleus progressed out of Group B with a game to spare. But he was not his usual dominant self on Wednesday in the group dead rubber against Ukraine, which finished 2-2 in Kiev.

"After what I saw from Thuram (against Ukraine), it isn´t going to get any better than that," said Les Bleus´ World Cup-winning captain from 1998.
