Cabaye Wanted By All Of Europe!
He went to Euro 2012 a Newcastle hero ... but the way things are going ... the whole of Europe want to know more about a guy called Yohan Cabaye.
France coach Laurent Blanc is confident his star midfielder will be fit for the game against Sweden on Tuesday.
Cabaye was replaced midway through the second half of Friday's 2-0 victory over co-hosts Ukraine after feeling a twinge in his thigh.
The Toon midfielder had earlier scored France's second goal and also struck the post, but he had been troubled by a slight thigh problem in the build-up to the game.
However, with France needing just a point against Sweden to be certain of advancing to the quarter-finals, Blanc has no major concerns over Cabaye's fitness.
Laurent Blanc: "I am not worried but we have to be aware of it.
"He had felt a little twinge behind his thigh in training and he felt it again during the match. He then thought it best not to push his luck."
