Ukraine Vs. France, Euro 2012: Lineups

Ukraine, unsurprisingly, are unchanged from their first match, which saw them see off Zlatan Ibrahimovich and Sweden by a score of 2-1. They'll be hoping to do the same against much tougher opposition here, although they probably can't rely on a second-half comeback to secure the points.

France, meanwhile, have dropped English Premier League stars Florent Malouda and Patrice Evra, bringing in Gael Clichy and Jeremy Menez to replace them. They've also shifted from a 4-3-3 to a more attack-minded 4-2-3-1 with Samir Nasri, the best player in their opening match, playing behind Karim Benzema at number ten. Should be an interesting one - and I'm sure everyone's just dying to see what happens when you put Andriy Shevchenko against Adil Rami and Phillippe Mexes.

Ukraine starting lineup (4-1-3-2): Andriy Pyatov; Yevhen Selin, Yevhen Khacheridi, Taras Mykhalyk, Oleh Husyev; Anatoliy Tymoshchuk; Yevhen Konoplyanka, Serhiy Nazarenko, Andriy Yarmolenko; Andriy Voronin, Andriy Shevchenko.

France starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Hugo Lloris, Gael Clichy, Phillippe Mexes, Adil Rami, Mathieu Debuchy; Yohan Cabaye, Alou Diarra; Jeremy Menez, Samir Nasri, Franck Ribery; Karim Benzema.
