France coach Blanc continues tirade against England

France coach Laurent Blanc has continued his tirade against England.

Despite criticism of his tactics against England, when his players continuously fouled in the opposition area to prevent counterattacks, he insists the Three Lions never showed any ambition in the opening game.

Blanc sneered last night: "The English just sat back and waited for us to come at them. But there is nothing worse than failing to achieve your objective by not playing.

"So if we want a result against Sweden, we need to play football."
