France scrum-half Dimitri Yachvili expects to be fit for his side's World Cup semi-final against Wales on Saturday.

French scrum-half Dimitri Yachvili has said that he expects to be fit for his side's World Cup semi-final against Wales on Saturday.

The 31-year-old has missed the last three days of training after he injured his thigh in France's quarter-final win against England.

"I'm fine, things are following their natural course," he said. "I started running again this morning, I'm still in the healing phase but everything's coming along well."

A victory for France on Saturday will secure their third World Cup final appearance.
