Patrice Evra admits he still does not expect a spot in the France starting XI despite having just won the Champions League and English Premier League with Manchester United.

The 27-year-old left the Red Devils´ double celebrations to join up with Raymond Domenech´s provisional 30-man squad as they prepare to face Italy, Holland and Romania in the group stage at Euro 2008.

"I´m not going to expect a place in the starting XI just because I´m a European champion," Evra told a press conference at the France national team camp.
