Paris:

Yann M'Vila will remain with the France squad for Euro 2012 after an MRI scan on Sunday revealed he has a "moderately serious" ankle sprain but with "no complications", according to the French Football Federation (FFF).

The 21-year-old holding midfielder, a key member of Laurent Blanc's side, injured himself in the first minute of France's 2-0 friendly win over Serbia on Thursday and had to leave the pitch moments later.

He will travel to Ukraine with the rest of the France squad on Wednesday, although his chances of featuring in the opening Group D game against England in Donetsk on June 11 appear slim.

"The MRI confirmed that it's a moderately serious sprain, without aggravating factors," read an FFF statement.

"It's running its course, there are no complications."

The FFF also said that goalkeeper Steve Mandanda, who had injured a toe on his right foot, was fit to play, but an MRI scan on midfielder Blaise Matuidi revealed that he has sustained "a minor tear to his right hamstring".

France complete their Euro 2012 preparations with a friendly game against Estonia in Le Mans on Tuesday evening.
