Ribery hopeful of recovery

Premiership

The Bayern Munich star has missed Les Bleus' previous two friendlies, most recently sitting out the friendly 1-1 draw with Paraguay on Sunday.

“Today I tried to run a little,” Ribery told Bild Sport.

“I have a test tomorrow, and then we will see. Hopefully, everything will then be in order.”

Should the 31-year-old Ballon d'Or nominee fail to prove his fitness for the Group E tie, national team coach Didier Deschamps could hand a start to either Montpellier midfielder Remy Cabella or Lyon's Alexandre Lacazette.
