France coach Raymond Domenech blasted Euro 2008 organisers after his side were drawn against Italy having already played the Azzurri in qualifying.

The French were relegated to the fourth pot of seeds - partly as a result of home and away defeats to Scotland in qualifying - and paid the price as they were matched with the Italians, Holland and Romania, and Domenech described the seedings which saw world champions Italy in pot two as "crazy".

"It was not an easy qualification for us and now we have this," said Domenech. "I had a gut feeling that it would turn out this way and we have to cope with it. We hope the game against Italy will not decide both of our fates."
