Trap believes we can win

Last updated : 19 October 2009 By Paul Jennings
Giovanni Trapattoni has brushed away negativity over our play-off opponents France. The experienced Italian is no stranger to huge football games and holds no fear over playing former winners and 2006 finalists France.

He said on

"These games are like cup finals, we have come through the qualification group and are one of only five teams in Europe with an unbeaten record, that will give us self-belief going into these games.

"We have done well so far but over the 180 minutes we must give something additional and we will have to be even more concentrated and focused than we have been until now.

"We have come out of a group containing the current world champions, Italy and have got positive results against them in both games. Now we face the 2006 World Cup finalists and our results to date will give us the conviction and the belief that we can get a result."
