Nasri predicts tough battle
Samir Nasri accepts the suspension of Wayne Rooney gives France an advantage but expects a fierce battle in Monday's Group D clash.
France go into the match in Donetsk as favourites after a run of 21 games unbeaten, but Nasri does not believe the result is a foregone conclusion against an injury-hit England side.
"The only advantage I can see at the moment is the suspension of Wayne Rooney. But England are England, they are amazing fighters and competitors," Nasri told France Football.
