All systems go for France as Blanc's squad free of injuries

France manager Laurent Blanc has a full quota of players to choose from this weekend's Euro2012 quarter-final against Spain.

Les Bleus take on the reigning European champions in Donetsk on Saturday and have everyone fit and available for the meeting according to the boss.

Pre-game doubts including Blaise Matuidi, Samir Nasri and Franck Ribery have all recovered form their problems and Blanc is raring to go for the final eight fixture.

"The whole squad is available, which is good news because we picked up a few knocks against Sweden - most notably Franck and Samir," he said.

"We've studied Spain well, as we always do, and we've done a video session with the players. We know what to expect tomorrow. There will be no real surprises."
