Franck Ribery has told his French teammates not to fear Spain during Tuesday's World Cup qualifier.

Les Bleus travel to the Vicente Calderon looking to avenge their 2-0 defeat to the world and European champions in the quarter-finals of Euro 2012.

"It's always special to play against Spain, they have great players," Ribery told reporters.

"Even though we still have things to correct, we still have an image to uphold. I did not want to go there and play small arms. We are still France."

France currently top qualifying Group I with two wins from their opening two matches.
