Yann M’Vila insists that he was fit to start for France against Sweden at Euro 2012
Arsenal target Yann M’Vila revealed that he was fit to start against Ukraine despite Laurent Blanc selecting him on the bench.
The 21-year-old was ruled out of France’s opener against England on Monday but came off the bench against the co-hosts on Friday.
“Philippe Lambert, France’s physical trainer, told me to warm up my ankle and train right away,” the Rennes midfielder said.
“That’s what I did. Running I felt no pain. I was fine physically.”
M’Vila is in line to return to the starting XI against Sweden on Tuesday.
