France seems to have left the 2010 World Cup scandal behind him &# 8211; Although Les Bleus has since 2006 not a game of a World Cup or European Championship finals won more, but the statistics of the qualifying stage speaks for Ribery and Co unbeaten for 21 games, most recently shown to tests against the German national team that the French team well will star above.
By contrast, the opponents England is hit hard into the tournament &# 8211; it includes not only five possible key players through injury, including star striker Wayne Rooney is still suspended for the first two Euro 2012 games for violent conduct. Of the Champions League winners from Chelsea Frank Lampard and Gary Cahill had to cancel, but Ashley Cole and John Terry could take the tailwind. The English could act similarly defensively against France as Chelsea Barcelona in the semifinals switched off &# 8211; with two low-lying defensive chains.
Even if the &# 8220; ThreeLions&# 8221; be expected given the strong Premier League is always in the top group, the balance of the England team is amazingly poor: Never European champion, the only world title dates back 46 years.
