Holland's Robben fit to face France

Holland winger Arjen Robben is fit to face France on Friday after making a rapid recovery from his groin injury.

The Real Madrid star was initially expected to miss all of the group stages after suffering the injury prior to the Dutch's stunning 3-0 success over World Cup holders Italy.

He was then pencilled in to return in the final Group C clash against Romania next Tuesday, but coach Marco van Basten has now confirmed that Robben is in contention to tackle Raymond Domenech's side in Berne.

Robben played a full part in training with his team-mates on Thursday and Van Basten said: "He is not only ready for Romania but also ready for France. He is fit."
