Man Utd fullback Evra proud to lead France in World Cup opener

Manchester United fullback Patrice Evra was proud to lead France in their opening World Cup clash with Uruguay.

France drew 0-0 with the South Americans.

"To captain the team at the World Cup is an honour, I'm very proud," he said.

"I said thanks to everyone and my team-mates, because they're very happy I am the captain and this has given me more power for leading the team.

"It's just a privilege. I said to me team-mates to just go and enjoy it. Lots of players dream of being there so you have to enjoy your football, and I think that's what we did against Uruguay."
