Patrice Evra says England were as defensive as Chelsea in their Champions League tie against Barcelona in Friday’s match against France.

France had to settle for a 1-1 draw in their Euro 2012 opener after Samir Nasri cancelled out Joleon Lescott’s header, and Evra has voiced his frustration with England’s negative approach to the game.

“We are frustrated because I think we played much better. At times it was like there were 15 bodies in front of us. It was really difficult to find space,” the left-back told reporters.

“People laugh but they played the way that Chelsea played against Barcelona. Maybe the fans want England to play more football but if they win the tournament like that, they will be happy.”

France take on co-hosts Ukraine on Friday, while England meet Sweden in their second game.
