This line-up seems to be Blanc's first choice going into the Euro's. I'm sure there may be minor tweaking, depending on their overall performance against Serbia. I'd prefer Menez over Malouda as the former is more creative but the latter is more direct and physical.

Why do you assume that this will be his favored lineup going into the Euros? I think he will go with the Rami Mexes partnership and Debuchy on the right. I also think he prefers Menez. This is just a chance for some of the players who didn't get time against Iceland.

Let's hope Clichy will have a good game. I don't think Malouda will be a starter for the competition.

let's see how this defense is working.

I strictly have nothing to say but I want that comes out.

Coaches usually go with their preferred line-up's closer to the tournament, but hence the remark with the minor tweaking. Clichy and Mexes are surely in, I'm also leaning towards Rami, though it wasn't the best of games he had against Iceland. Malouda and Menez are a toss up, we'll see what Blanc decides. The rest stay's imo.

Clichy with an agressive tackle. He has done already more than Evra.

Goal Ribéry ! Nice work from Ribéry from the start, and followed the action.

2-0 Malouda. Serbia doesn't look that motivated though. But France shows pace so far. Still pissed by M'Vila injured. Ruined my evening.

There was a 3 against 2 for Serbia nicely negoaciated by Mexes (or was it Koscielny ?). RvR was too far away to help.
