France and Romania begin the long-awaited football festival of Euro-2016. The opening match, played in France, in front of thousands of Frenchmen, in Paris… it must really feel like huge responsibility for Didieu Deschamps and his men.
Romania, too, has tough times in this kick-off game; Angel Iordanescu'd rather have full confidence in his defenders, the squad’s currently strongest line in the pitch.
