France take on England on Monday 11th June, 2012, with kickoff at 17:00. This match is currently being shown LIVE on ITV1.
Here it is, the first game of what will be one of the most interesting England campaigns in recent memory. Roy Hodgson has had about 5 minutes, relatively speaking, to get his team sorted out and his squad united, and given those conditions it is understandable that he has gone with what he knows, solidity at the back and some counter-attacking play based on direct passing and quick wingers.
France are bursting at the seams with talent for the first time in a while, and with new manager Laurent Blanc restoring a bit of morale this could well be a good year for the men in blue.
