Defender Bacary Sagna has lamented the "avoidable" infighting that he believes "wasted" France's hopes of glory at Euro 2012.

France had arrived in Poland and Ukraine on the back of a long unbeaten run but meekly exited the tournament following a 2-0 quarter-final defeat to Spain on Saturday. Following that loss, reports of unrest in Laurent Blanc's squad intensified, with reports in France now suggesting the national association will meet on Tuesday to mete out punishments.

"I was especially annoyed to hear the stories going around. That's regrettable - in the end it gives a bad image of us, the team. It's a waste of a competition. Everything was avoidable," said Sagna, who did not travel to Euro 2012 after breaking his leg for Arsenal in May. "It's a shame that this never leaves the team alone."
