Euro 2016: France Vs Romania Match Preview

Published on:

France will kick-off their Euro 2016 campaign against Romania with the hosts desperate to start this tournament on a good note.

Amidst tight security in the aftermath of the Paris attacks with the Stade de France one of the targeted sites, France will want a ray of sunshine with a win.

France’s preparations have been hampered by a string of injuries along with a scandal involving striker Karim Benzema, who last week was denied a chance to play in the tournament over an alleged blackmail scandal.

The FFF suspended Benzema last December and upheld the ban in April, with the star striker accusing the football federation of racism.

Romania on the other hand have struggled their way into the Euros, but their resolute defence could make matters difficult for the home team.

Possible line-ups

France: Lloris; Sagna, Rami, Koscielny, Évra; Pogba, Kanté, Matuidi; Griezmann, Giroud, Payet.

Romania: Tătăruşanu; Săpunaru, Chiricheş, Grigore, Raţ; Hoban, Pintilii; Popa, Stanciu, Stancu; Keșerü.
