Cabaye says Newcastle pal Ben Arfa deserves France chance

Yohan Cabaye hopes Newcastle United teammate Hatem Ben Arfa gets chance in the Euros.

Cabaye says Ben Arfa is good enough to take this tournament by storm when given a proper chance by Laurent Blanc.

Cabaye said: "Samir Nasri, Karim Benzema and Jeremy Menez are top players. If a team wants to accomplish something special, it needs talent - and those players are talented.

"There is also Hatem Ben Arfa, who did not play against Ukraine.

"He is a special footballer and very exciting. I am sure he can do well if he gets his chance."
