thumbnail Hello,

The Manchester United defender was not amused with Roy Hodgson's negative approach to Monday's encounter in Donetsk as Samir Nasri's goal cancelled out Joleon Lescott's opener

Patrice Evra has voiced his opinion that England were as defensive as Chelsea in their Champions League tie versus Barcelona in Friday's Group D match against France.

Les Bleus had to settle for a 1-1 draw in their Euro 2012 opener after Samir Nasri levelled the scoring following Joleon Lescott's header, and Evra has voiced his frustration with the Three Lions' negative approach to the game.
OX IN THE BOX?
14/1 Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is 14/1 with Sportingbet to score the first goal when England play Sweden on Friday.

"We are frustrated because I think we played much better. At times it was like there were 15 bodies in front of us. It was really difficult to find space," the left-back stated to reporters.

"People laugh but they played the way that Chelsea played against Barcelona. Maybe the fans want England to play more football but if they win the tournament like that, they will be happy."

France resume match action on Friday when they take on co-hosts Ukraine, while England meet Sweden in their second game.
