Remy included on France's provisional roster

France striker Loic Remy was selected to his country's provisional Euro 2012 roster Tuesday, although a thigh injury picked up with club side Marseille could cost him a spot on finals roster.

The 25-year old Remy left Marseille's 3-0 win over Auxerre early in the second half over the weekend, and will be sidelined "three to four weeks," according to Marseille.

Remy has played 17 times for France, but his country opens June 11 against England, and he may not be able to regain fitness in time to be included on the roster by coach Laurent Blanc.

Following is the complete provisional France roster:

Goalkeepers: Cedric Carrasso (Bordeaux), Hugo Lloris (Lyon), Steve Mandanda (Marseille).

Defenders: Gael Clichy (Manchester City), Mathieu Debuchy (Lille), Patrice Evra (Manchester United), Laurent Koscielny (Arsenal), Philippe Mexes (AC Milan), Adil Rami (Valencia), Anthony Reveillere (Lyon), Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa (Montpellier).

Midfielders: Yohan Cabaye (Newcastle), Alou Diarra (Marseille), Yoann Gourcuff (Lyon), Florent Malouda (Chelsea), Yann M'Vila (Rennes), Marvin Martin (Sochaux), Blaise Matuidi (PSG), Samir Nasri (Manchester City).

Forwards: Hatem Ben Arfa (Newcastle), Karim Benzema (Real Madrid), Olivier Giroud (Montpellier), Jeremy Menez (PSG), Franck Ribery (Bayern Munich), Mathieu Valbuena (Marseille), Lo���c Remy (Marseille).
