England and France play today in the first of two group D matches.

Young Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is getting the start, everyone. Please proceed to the nearest mustering point, please don all protective gear, find a buddy, and take shelter. Try to speak despite the klaxons as best you can.

Laurent Koscielny is a substitute today.

France (4-3-3): Lloris; Evra, Mexes, Rami, Debuchy; Malouda, Diarra, Cabye; Ribery, Benzema, Na$ri.

England (4-4-2): Hart; Johnson, Lescott, Terry, Cole; Milner, Parker, Gerrard, Chamberlain; Young, Welbeck.

Enjoy the match, everyone. Remember: do not link to illegal streams, or you will be flogged. Do not post pictures with a height of more than 300, or you will be flogged. Do not be mean to each other, or everyone will be flogged. And always use a subject line, or you will be flogged.
