France is in a group of death, believes Wissam Ben Yedder – –

French striker Wissam Ben Yedder has said the reigning world champion is in the toughest group in the European Championship and needs to start his campaign against Germany in Tuesday’s opener.

France, who beat Croatia to win the 2018 World Cup, are in Group F alongside defending champion Portugal, four-time world champion from Germany and 37th from Hungary.

“This is the group of death. There are some very good teams, ”said Ben Yedder.

“We will start the competition with a lot of energy. We are really looking forward to starting the competition and we are going to give it our all. We have a really big game as a starting point and we know we have to be strong together for the first game.

Defender Benjamin Pavard said France face a tough challenge against the Germans, who will play in front of their home crowd in Munich.

“The first game is very exciting against Germany,” said Pavard. “It won’t be an easy game against a very good German team. We are not going to put pressure on ourselves. “

Les Bleus are the favorites to win the centerpiece of European football, but Pavard said Germany and Portugal are also in contention for the title.

“We are one of the favorites but not the favorite,” said the 25-year-old. “We can’t just believe it’s going to be an automatic victory. We have to play game by game and we’ll see.
