Robert Pires won't brag about France's European Championship win over England when he joins his Arsenal teammates for pre-season training. Pires, who started alongside Arsenal teammates Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira on Sunday in the Group B match, played against fellow Gunners Sol Campbell and Ashley Cole. France scored two injury-time goals to win 2-1 at the Stadium of Light. Pires says Arsenal's French stars will favor the sensitive approach when club players from both nations return to training. Sweet victory "We will say nothing to them, we will not brag about it. It's not our style," quoted pires. France is now the heavy favorite to win Group B. The defending champions will next be facing Croatia in Lieira on Thursday. England on the other hand is coming in last and needs to bounce back in their match against Switzerland. Nerve wracking Pires, trained lightly yesterday while the reserves played a friendly against a local team. He has decided to try and rest before taking on Croatia. The intensity of France's win against fierce rival England left his nerves frayed and his Adrenalin pumping through the night. "I didn't get to sleep until 5:30 in the morning," he said. "I couldn't switch off, so I put the television on and watched the NBA finals between Detroit Pistons and the Los Angeles Lakers. (AP)
