Group D brings the first phase of Euro 2012 to a close on Tuesday evening with France needing just a point against the already eliminated Sweden in Kiev to progress to the last-eight.
But with Spain almost certain to top Group C, the French must equal England’s result in order to come out on top and avoid the world and reigning European champions in this weekend’s quarter-final games.

Laurent Blanc’s side go into the game having lost just once in their last seven competitive games and could have Rennes midfielder Yann M’Vila in the starting XI ahead of the struggling Newcastle star Yohan Cabaye, while Gael Clichy is set to stay at left-back ahead of Patrice Evra.
Sweden coach Erik Hamren has no fresh injury problems as he sends his side out with just pride to play for following defeats to Ukraine and England so expect France to come out on top and send them home without a point to their name.
