England's Stewart Downing does not fear France and is confident of starting Euro 2012 with a win.

The Three Lion’s face France in their opening group game, before taking on Sweden on 15 June and Ukraine four days later.

The 27 year old said: "We are confident we can get a result. We don't fear them.

"We know they are a good team but so are we. We know their strength and weaknesses."

He denied that the England's players are talking about Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand's omission, saying: "Whoever the manager picks, we get on with it. I concentrate on my position in the team and so do the other players."
