Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri aims to take his title-winning form into the Euros with France.

Les Bleus have not won a match in a major tournament since beating Portugal in the 2006 World Cup semi-final.

And Nasri admitted: “Winning the Euro after the Premier League would be the ultimate dream.

“But we must beat England. If not, I will get it from every side when I return to City.

“I will be facing Joe Hart, Joleon Lescott and James Milner so we must win. But you have to take things one at a time and wait to see how it goes in the group stage.

“There is no big ogre in our group like Spain or Germany. But the first objective is to reach the quarter-finals.

“We’re under less pressure than in 2008 when France were the second best team in the world.

“This time we are outsiders and the first match against England, will set the tone.”
