CLAIREFONTAINE, France (AP) — France striker Olivier Giroud could be available to play Belarus on Tuesday after training successfully on Saturday following a muscle problem.

Giroud sat out training before Friday's World Cup qualifier against Finland as a precautionary measure and didn't play, but the Arsenal forward appeared to feel no ill effects on Saturday.

Giroud's Arsenal teammate Abou Diaby scored France's 1-0 winner in Helsinki.

European Championship winner Spain and Georgia are also in Group I.
