France's Jeremy Menez has admitted that he was upset by the whistles and boos he heard during Tuesday night's friendly clash with Estonia and has called upon the country's supporters to fully get behind Laurent Blanc's men at Euro 2012.

The Paris Saint-Germain winger scored Les Bleus' final goal in the 4-0 win at Le Mans but he barely celebrated, admitting that he had been left less than impressed by the crowd's impatience within him.

"I was happy with the goal, but not so much with the whistles in the stadium," Menez is quoted as saying by L'Equipe.

MENEZ TO MAKE HIS MARK?

"Even if it's part of the game, it is necessary to get behind the France team. Misplaced passes ... it happens."

Defender Philippe Mexes has been the subject of much concern within the French media in the run-up to the tournament, but Menez is in no doubt that the AC Milan defender will step up to the mark in their opening game in Group D against England on June 11.

"I'm not worried about him, as I know what he is capable of," the 25-year-old said of his former Roma team-mate.

"And they were only friendly matches. Great players, you always see them in big games. He will respond on Monday on the field.

"We will play without fear or pressure. For many of us, it'll be our first big competition. I'm really looking forward to the first game."

France's mouthwatering match-up with great rivals England is scheduled to kick off in Donetsk at 18:00CET.
