Lloris backing Les Bleus

Goalkeeper happy with France preparations

Hugo Lloris: Goalkeeper insists confidence is high in the French camp

Skipper Hugo Lloris insists France are a side which is brimming with a desire to do well at Euro 2012.

The Les Bleus goalkeeper insists confidence is high in the camp as they head into their opening game of the tournament against England on a 21-game unbeaten run.

Laurent Blanc's side face the Three Lions at the Donbass Arena in Donetsk on Monday, before tackling co-hosts Ukraine and ending their Group D campaign against Sweden.

And Lyon shot-stopper Lloris believes the two-time European champions are now all set to get on with things.

"Our 21-game unbeaten run has been important for our confidence," he said.

"We have a lot of competitors in our side all keen to start the competition in the best way possible. The squad has gone really well, we're training very well. Our preparations have been focused on this game.

"I think there's a lot of determination and desire, which you'll see against England.

"If we want this atmosphere to continue we need to get results.

"We don't want to end with any regrets. We want to get on with things."
