France Vs. England, Euro 2012: England Looking Good

Danny Welbeck is back on the pitch and moving around fairly freely, so he should be alright. That's a relief for England and for fans of not watching Andy Carroll. Meanwhile, France go on the attack again, with Mathieu Debouchy doing very well to burst down the right before sending in a frankly abysmal cross that Joe Hart can claim easily. I'm not entirely sure why France are crossing so much - Karim Benzema's good enough, but against John Terry and Joleon Lescott? That's not likely to be very successful.

Meanwhile, England are taking advantage of France's issue at centre half, with Welbeck looking to take on Phillippe Mexes at basically every opportunity. He briefly gets past the defender before Mexes, to his credit, recovers with an excellent tackle just outside the penalty box. Anyway, we're about half an hour in and it's still 0-0. France have been the better side in possession, but England have had the better chances and they'll be the happier side.
