France may have to show patience against a stubborn Greece side tonight, according to Arsenal FC manager Arsène Wenger.
The holders meet Greece in the second quarter-final at the Estádio José Alvalade and while Wenger considers them clear favourites to advance, he warned that the Greeks' good organisation could make life difficult for Les Bleus.
Wenger told euro2004.com: "Greece's very tight marking, the way they play man to man, that's a problem France will face. Greece will try to play on the break so France must be patient and have good movement of the ball. Apart from that I think France are logically super favourites."
France needed late goals to beat England and Switzerland in the group stage and Wenger admitted they had not been at their best so far in the tournament. "Switzerland made it difficult for France but the most important thing is to win the game," he said.
'Not completely convincing'
"They know themselves they were not completely convincing, but they've gone through with no defeat until now and even when France do not play well, you smell always that they can score goals because of the quality they have."
