Domenech plays down concerns about Ribery

France coach Raymond Domenech played down injury fears surrounding Franck Ribery after the winger hobbled off during the international friendly against Uruguay.

The Bayern Munich star was helped off the pitch by two members of Les Bleus' medical staff after feeling the full force of a robust 56th-minute tackle by Alvaro Pereira.

It initially appeared Ribery had sustained a serious ankle injury but he got off lightly, according to Domenech.

"He had a narrow escape," said the France boss.

"Ribery has a ripped sock and shinpad, but it stops there."

Domenech was incensed by Pereira's tackle, adding: "I find it a shame that certain referees in friendly matches don't apply the rules.

"Normally with an attack like that, it is a red card. But because it is a friendly match, people say, 'it isn't a problem, just be careful'."

Ribery should be fit for Bayern Munich's Bundesliga match against Energie Cottbus on Saturday.
