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.
