France´s priority should be substance rather than style as they look to negotiate their way out of the ´Group of Death´ at Euro 2008, according to defender Willy Sagnol.

With the likes of Spain, Portugal and Holland illuminating the early stages of the tournament with eye-catching, attacking football, Les Bleus´ pragmatic and defensive approach has drawn criticism from many quarters.

But Sagnol said: "What´s the most important thing, the show or the result? In the 2006 World Cup, we weren´t the most spectacular team and neither were Italy, but both of us got to the final."
