Yes, here we are. Another major tournament kicks off and its France v Romania to kick us off.

France are looking very strong and look like joint favourites alongside Germany to win the tournament, especially with it being on home soil. Lots of pressure and expectation on them though, can they deliver and deliver well, given their opposition?

Romania I'm sure will be out to play spoiler and will be out to keep it tight, playing for a draw. France though will want to send a message and win by a few goals.

Anyway, all match discussion in here.

Cannot wait for this to kick off, the footballs only been finished for just over a week and I'm already getting withdrawal symptoms. I think France will win this comfortably, there'll be a fantastic atmosphere cheering them on and they have far too much quality for Romania. An early French goal and a steady 3-0 victory to kick off the tournament, can't see Romania troubling in this group.

Romania had the best recoed in qualifying regarding goals conceded with only two, but I think the main men Pogba et al will prove too strong for Romania, 2-0.

France v Switzerland would have been a more exciting opening game, but I'm not complaining, stuffed that tomorrow is the day the tournament starts! Can't surely be anything but a France win here... I have a tenner on Giroud to be the tourno's top scorer (due to France's easy route to the semis), hopefully he bags a couple if France are going to win anyway.

Both hope and expect France to win comfortably here, would be great to see and will add to the atmosphere and fight of the French considering all the non-football shite that has plagued them in recent times.

4-0

I'll go for 2-1 France. It could get a bit nervy for them if they don't get an early goal and Romania will be well-drilled at the back. France will probably dominate the majority of the match but defensively they could be troubled.

I'm looking forward to, hopefully, an enjoyable tournament.

As for a score prediction: 2-0 France.

Pretty formidable mid that, Kante, Matuidi and Pogba.

I used to have a pair of dwarf roborovski hamsters that sprinted about their cage non-stop. They were called Tootle and Pootle but if I had them now I reckon I'd call them Kante and Kante.

I thought so. Hoddle reckons it was outside the box. Need to have another look.

Romania don't look too bad, but I think France will sneak a goal in the second half. Payet's deliveries haven't been much good so far, save for that last corner.

Must say well done to ITV on getting Bilic in.

France outplaying Romania. Started well, should've scored and will probably live to regret that. I can't see Romania scoring if they keep playing like they finished the first-half, just no threat up front because they are so defensive. Pogba and Kante both excellent. Rami looking very good too.

Yeah, Bilic is a geezer. Shame he's fucking Vermin scum, but you can't have everything.

Romania playing game of percentages.

France's midfield looks great but reckon they're there to be got at. Impulsive prediction: they'll be knocked out narrowly in the semis.
