Jean-Michel Aulas, Lyon club president
The first match, Belgium v Italy, is a fantastic encounter. Belgium have an incredible team with numerous players at Europe's top clubs, while Italy need no introduction. If France top their group they would play their round of 16 tie and semi-final in Lyon. A semi-final in Lyon involving France would be fantastic. The fact that we can stage such matches also shows that the infrastructure that has been developed is of the highest quality.
