thumbnail Hello,

The forward believes that his national team can replicate Greece's competition success in 2004 after a shock 2-1 friendly win against Germany and continue their unbeaten run

Tottenham striker Louis Saha believes that recent form of France puts them in good stead for glory at Euro 2012.

Enjoying an 18-game unbeaten run, recording an impressive 2-1 victory against Germany along the way, France also topped their Euro 2012 qualifying group, slumping to just one defeat in the process.

The 33-year-old insists that their fine form has generated a lot of positivity around the French camp and believes that Laurent Blanc's men can now push on and pose a serious challenge in the European championships, much like Greece had managed to do back in 2004 despite being considered underdogs.

Speaking to RMC on Wednesday, Saha said: "We'll go [to the competition] with more respect. There's been a lot of matches undefeated.

"There is a positive dynamic. Winning in Germany, it was huge.

"We developed an interesting game especially as Karim [Benzema] and Loic [Remy] were not present. The back-up players showed that they can do something in the competition."

"It was a short competition to go through in 2004. It can go very quickly. We have seen Greece win, and I don't know why France cannot win.

France were drawn in the same group as England for this summer's competition alongside Sweden and Ukraine.
