Nasri revealed: “I’m expecting many months of jokes and bets with my mates, but I must warn them that, if I am selected against England, I will have no friends once we are on the field.
“Being drawn against England is good and bad news for France.
“They are always a hard rival but if we win the round then we will not have to meet them later on.
“It will be a battle on the pitch and I would have preferred not to play the first match against England, but the draw has set it up.
“I would love for France and England to qualify for the quarter-finals, but Ukraine are dangerous because they are playing at home and that will increase the number of problems they pose, and Sweden are a very physical team with
players who have plenty of experience.
“The group is difficult but it’s not impossible. The first success for France must be to qualify for the quarter-finals.”
