Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, who is French, has tipped his home nation to challenge for the European Championship trophy, but said that he believed his team would miss the legend Zinedine Zidane. He outlined Karim Benzema as the key player to France’s success in Euro 2008.
“If you look at the relative strengths, you have some teams that are better equipped, like France”
“With France, every single player plays for a big club in Europe. So, quality-wise, France are best equipped.”
“They look strong counter-attacking. But when they are dominating a game, they will miss a player like Zidane who can make a key pass to open a defence up.”
“When they win the ball back, they need three seconds to score a goal, otherwise it becomes difficult for them.” – Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger
