Ukraine vs France, Euro 2012: Open Thread
Here we go. The final day of the second round of matches in the group stages of Euro 2012. Kicking off the first game is Ukraine against France. After Ukraine’s win against Sweden, and France’s unimpressive draw against England, it’ll be fascinating to see who comes out on top in this game. Ukraine will be backed by their home support. France will be urged on by their silky-smooth footballers.
France team: Lloris, Debuchy, Rami, Mexes, Clichy, Cabaye, Diarra, Ribery, Nasri, Menez, Benzema
Ukraine team: Pyatov; Husyev, Mykhalyk, Khacheridi, Selin; Yarmolenko, Tymoshchuk, Nazarenko, Konoplyanka; Voronin, Shevchenko
In the French team news, Patrice Evra has been dropped. Samir Nasri will return to a number 10 role, with France to play a 4-2-3-1 formation.
