UEFA Euro 2008 Match of the Day Live - France v Holland
Fri 13 Jun, 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm 150mins
Gary Lineker introduces live coverage of the Group C encounter between Holland and France in Bern.
It's been 28 years since the Dutch failed to advance from the group stage of a major tournament but, having been drawn with World Cup finalists Italy and France, they face an uphill task to progress from Group C. Holland are coached by Marco van Basten, who memorably volleyed the winner in the 1988 final. He will step down after Euro 2008 and, along with retiring keeper Edwin van der Sar, will want to leave on a high.
Since winning the 1998 World Cup and Euro 2000, the French have been somewhat inconsistent, yet they usually raise their game against quality opposition. Raymond Domenech's side laboured through in the group stages of the 2006 World Cup but turned on the style against Spain, Brazil and Portugal, and were perhaps unfortunate to lose to Italy in the final. There are plenty of familiar names in the Les Bleus squad, including Thierry Henry, Nicolas Anelka and William Gallas. Commentary is from John Motson.
