France is under pressure: Blanc
France boss Laurent Blanc has admitted that his players are feeling anxious ahead tonight's Euro 2012 encounter with England
Everyone is under pressure, the players and the technical staff,” Blanc told Telefoot. “I feel that everyone wants to be at their best for the first game against England.
“The talk I will give to my players, it will be that we have done what we expected during preparation. The guys are ready, we have put everything on our side.
They will especially enjoy playing that game,” said the 46-year-old.
Yann M'Vila and Blaise Matuidi have given France a timely boost as they are close to regaining full fitness after recently picking up knocks.
