The Stade Rennais midfielder has been in a race against time to regain match fitness for the tournament after sustaining an ankle injury in France's 2-0 friendly win over Serbia on May 31.

"We are doing our best to make him fit," Bryand told RMC.

"His sprained ankle is healing very quickly and in a spectacular way.

"But right now we are not optimistic about his involvement in the match against England."

M'Vila, who broke into the Rennais ' first team in 2009, has 19 appearances to his name for France.
