France coach Laurent Blanc is still unsure what his best team is to face England in their opening European Championship match on Monday.
A recent 4-0 win against Estonia, the third straight victory in the warmup games, confirmed that France can be a force to be reckoned with in attack at Euro 2012, but some glaring defensive lapses left Blanc feeling frustrated.
Although he defended center back Philippe Mexes, notably denying that the AC Milan defender is overweight, his place appears to be under threat after playing France into trouble against Estonia. Left back Patrice Evra and attacking midfielder Samir Nasri are the others facing competition for their starting spots.
Speaking Thursday, Blanc said ''it will come down to one or two places.''
