It looks like both Patrice Evra and Newcastle’s Yohan Cabaye should be fit for France’s 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier in Madrid, Spain tomorrow night, or so says new France manager and former France captain – Didier Deschamps.
Yohan Cabaye – fit to play tomorrow night in Madrid
Yohan had been suffering from severe stomach pains and a rib injury, but he seems to have fully recovered from those ailments, and now we have to hope that he comes through the game in Madrid uninjured.
This is what Didier Deschamps had to say yesterday to TF1 about the injuries:
“Yohan Cabaye trained normally yesterday, so there’s no problem,”
“Patrice is also a lot better. He worked a little apart yesterday, but we still have three days. The two of them should be available no problem on Tuesday.”
Neither player played in the 1-0 friendly loss to Japan last week, and Patrice has a back injury, but both are expected to be in the side that starts against the World and European Champions tomorrow night, and that should be some game to watch.
But the main thing we want to see is Yohan come through that game unscathed so he can line up for Newcastle against Sunderland next Sunday.
That’s the important thing.
