Posted on by Sreya

France vs Sweden

The UEFA Euro 2016 kicks off at Stade de France on 10th June when France take on Romania in the inaugural Group A fixture. Not only are France the hosts of this year’s European Championships, but one of the favorites to lift the trophy at this very stadium in Seine-Saint Denis come 10th of July.

As a firm blanket of security covers the French cities amidst fears of terrorism, Romania became the first country to arrive into France to begin their final preparations for the EURO 2016.

Team News

Didier Deschamps and Anghel Iordanescu both have completely healthy squads to choose from for the opening match of the tournament.

France Possible Starting XI: Hugo Lloris, Bacary Sagna, Elaquim Mangala, Laurent Koscielny, Patrice Evra, N’Golo Kante, Blaise Matuidi, Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial, Antoine Griezmann, Olivier Giroud.

Romania Possible Starting XI: Ciprian Tatarusanu, Cristian Sapunaru, Vlad Chiriches, Dragos Grigore, Razvan Rat, Ovidiu Hoban, Mithai Pintilii, Adrian Popa, Nicolae Stanciu, Bogdan Stancu, Florin Andone.

Thoughts From Both Camps

“The less the occasion weighs on the players, the better. Obviously we’re playing in France, but the Romanian team we’re up against will not roll over and they will give their best to achieve a good result.”

– Didier Deschamps, France.

“We are up against one of the best teams in the tournament, among the favourites. I hope and believe our players will do their best to show everybody that we have a good team, a worthy team capable of putting in a good performance.”

– Angel Iordanescu, Romania.

Contributor’s Pick

France are yet to lose a competitive match against Romania, according to Head-2-Head statistics, which includes the previous two meetings between these two sides in the European Championships.

France are one of only three sides to have won a EURO as hosts, along with Spain (1964) and Italy (1968). Romania are yet to start a EURO with a win; they lost their EURO 1996 opener 1-0 to France, and drew 1-1 with Germany at UEFA EURO 2000 and 0-0 with France at UEFA EURO 2008.

The hosts have won twenty one, drew eight and lost only three matches at Stade de France. Although the French side is a favorite for this particular fixture, Romania are no push-overs and could spring a surprise on Deschamp’s side.

The betting odds for a France win are 1.34, a draw are 5.37 while a Romania win are at an extremely high 14.07. France are likely to win the opening fixture 2-0.

this is the starting type for france, as we know since long time in france ...
MAURITIUS jferioux For me France will win the match by 2-0. Goals from Griezmann and Payet.
SINGAPORE beck Despite the notable absence of Karim Benzema, I think this crop of French players have what it takes to reach the quarter finals at least. With the likes of Anthony Martial and Griezmann, it is very possible.
