Ukraine vs France Preview

The first game on day eight of the championships, will be between co-host Ukraine and France in Donetsk.

The hosts go into the game top of the group after a fantastic win against Sweden, hero Andriy Shevchenko will again spearhead the attack as they aim to become the first team to qualify for the quarters. France picked up a draw against England last time out and are expected to win this one, Ukraine shouldn't be as defensively minded as the English so it should make for a good game.

France's build up play looked good against England and I expect them to have more goal scoring opportunities this time around, Ukraine will have their chances but apart from Shevchenko, where's the quality going to come from?.

I think the French will edge this, it'll be close but I think they'll have too much for the hosts, I can see France qualifying top with Ukraine having an all or nothing clash with England.
