France coach Laurent Blanc is hopeful that Yann M’Vila will recover from his ankle problem in time for Euro 2012.

Les Bleus’ 2-0 friendly victory against Serbia on Thursday was disrupted by M’Vila’s injury in the opening minutes of the game, which looked serious after the Rennes midfielder limped out in distress.

France national team doctor Fabrice Bryand said after the match that he will need 48 hours to reassess the injury before determining M’Vila’s recovery time.

Blanc is upbeat about the player’s chances of featuring in the country’s opening game at Euro 2012 against England.

“We think that he will be available for the first match of the Euros,” he told reporters.

Turning his attention to the win over Serbia, Blanc was satisfied with his men’s display, but noted there are many things that the team must improve on before the start of the tournament.

“We strive for perfection, but there is no such thing,” he said. “We showed a better physical freshness than we did against Iceland, but we are not yet ready.

“We were a bit disappointing in the last 15 minutes, but overall I am pretty happy with our display.”

France kick off their Euro campaign against England on June 11 before taking on Ukraine and Sweden.
