France Vs. England, Euro 2012: Interesting Moments At Both Ends

Well that's interesting. Adil Rami holds onto the ball for far too long as he attempts to start a France attack, and he gets pressed to the touchline by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain before eventually being dispossessed. The Arsenal youngster starts a break, advancing on Hugo Lloris' penalty area with Danny Welbeck available in the centre. Unfortunately for England, he's unable to find him and the pass is cut out.

Shortly thereafter, France go on the attack for the first time. Scott Parker tries to break it up with a crunching tackle on Samir Nasri, but Steven Gerrard immediately gives the ball away and suddenly a scooped pass finds Karim Benzema in the box. Only a flailing leg from John Terry can see the ball out to safety, with nothing coming of the corner. So that's dangerous moments for both teams in the first few minutes, but it's still 0-0.
