France are in'group of death' in Euros, '' Says Ben Yedder

"It is the group of departure. You will find really great teams," explained Ben Yedder.

"We will initiate the contest with a great deal of energy. We're really impatient to begin the contest and we will give it our greatest.

"We've got a very major match as a starting point and we all understand that we need to be strong collectively for the first game."

Defender Benjamin Pavard stated France face a difficult challenge against the Germans, that is playing in front of their home crowd in Munich.

"The first game is quite exciting against Germany," Pavard explained. "It isn't likely to be a simple game against a really good German group. We're not likely to place any pressure on ourselves."

Les Bleus are favourites to win the European showpiece, however, Pavard stated Germany and Portugal will also be in contention for the title.

"We're among the favorites but not the favorite," that the 25-year-old said. "We can not simply believe it's going to be an automatic win. We must play match by match and we're going to see."
