High standard

Italy and France are level on one point after two games, one less than Romania who play the Netherlands, the Group C winners, in Berne. "The standard is extremely high, especially in this group," Desailly's former Chelsea team-mate Roberto Di Matteo added. "I don't think France and Italy have been disappointing. They faced a great Netherlands side and Romania are also a very difficult team to beat. I think several teams would be happy to see potential winners such as France and Italy out of the tournament so early."

Romania impress
Desailly believes that Romania are well placed to deny France and Italy a quarter-final berth, explaining: "Italy have been a bit unlucky in their first two games. The French were a bit short of enthusiasm. I hope they get back to their usual selves, as both are very solid and competitive teams. Even if they don't make it to the next round, I hope France can end their campaign on a high with victory against Italy. I wouldn't be very surprised if Romania and the Netherlands go through because they have both played very well in qualifying and have also done very well here so far."
