France set friendly dates

France have confirmed friendlies later this year against Croatia, Poland and Ukraine.

Slaven Bilic's side will visit the Stade de France on Tuesday, 29 March, following on from the 9 February home friendly against Brazil.

Les Bleus will then follow their UEFA Euro 2012 qualifier against Belarus on 3 June with trips to both of the tournament's co-hosts - Ukraine on 6 June and Poland three days later.

It is hoped the latter two encounters can be played in the new stadiums being built for the tournament in Kiev and Gdansk.
