France have been handed a boost by the news that striker Karim Benzema will be fit for Tuesday's Euro 2012 qualifier against Bosnia-Herzegovina.

The Real Madrid star missed Friday's disappointing 1-0 loss at home to Belarus, as Les Bleus' struggles continued despite a change in manager.

Head coach Laurent Blanc has fitness doubts over Loic Remy and Louis Saha ahead of next week's clash, so Benzema's availability is a fillip for the French.

"We learnt at morning training that Karim would be fit," said Blanc.

On the loss to Belarus, Blanc reflected: "The hardest thing is football is scoring. We could not do it.

"The current situation is difficult, we have to fight on."
