France forward Karim Benzema, who sustained a knee injury during a friendly on Tuesday, is expected to take part in his team’s Euro 2020 Group F opener against Germany, the French federation (FFF) said on Thursday.

Benzema, who limped off the pitch in the world champions’ 3-0 win over Bulgaria, has been training indoors and should be fit for Tuesday’s clash in Munich.

France also face Hungary and Portugal in the group stage.
