Blanc to name larger provisional squad before Euro

Blanc to name larger provisional squad before Euro

France coach Laurent Blanc will name a larger provisional squad for the European Championship later this month.
Blanc had previously said he would only announce a final 23-man squad once he had decided on it, but has now changed his mind.
The French Football Federation said on its website Wednesday that Blanc will name the first part of his provisional squad _ comprising of foreign-based players _ on May 9, before selecting those from the French league on May 15.
Blanc will then trim down his squad by releasing several players.
Teams must name their official Euro 2012 squads by May 29.
France, European Champion in 1984 and 2000, faces England, Sweden and host Ukraine in its group.
