Yohan Cabaye and Hatem Ben Arfa both played a part as France outclassed Serbia in a Euro 2012 warm-up in Reims

By Dan King - Newcastle United Club Reporter

Yohan Cabaye and Hatem Ben Arfa were both involved in France's impressive friendly win over Serbia on Thursday evening.

Les Bleus looked strong and slick in Reims, with Franck Ribery and Florent Malouda on target in the first half to seal a 2-0 success as they warmed up for the European Championships.

Cabaye started the match and played for an hour, while Ben Arfa enjoyed a late cameo as he came on for the final 14 minutes.

Laurent Blanc's side play their final friendly game against Estonia in Le Mans on June 5, with their opening Euro 2012 match coming against England in the Ukraine on June 11.
