French chief Le Graet: Man Utd's Evra a great man

Manchester United fullback Patrice Evra has won official French praise for inspiring Les Bleus to their World Cup qualifying win over Belarus.

While a non-playing substitute, it was Evra who lifted the players at halftime with a rousing speech.

FFF President Noel Le Graet said: "Aside from what took place few years ago, we know Evra loves of the French national team.

"He is a great man, he has the national team in his blood and he really wants to do well."
