Florent Malouda reveals that France are confident that they can surprise the world during this summer's European Championships.

Florent Malouda has claimed that France can surprise everyone at the European Championships after his side defeated Germany in Wednesday's friendly.

The Chelsea midfielder scored during the 2-1 victory in Bremen and believes that the triumph is a sign of how far France have come since their first-round elimination at the 2010 World Cup.

Malouda admits that Laurent Blanc's side are confident ahead of the June 11 opener against England in Donetsk.

The 31-year-old said: "Germany are a superior team to England, yet we beat them.

"We can surprise the entire world if we carry on in this way.

"We must not get big-headed as we have gone out in the first round at the last two tournaments."

France have gone 18 games unbeaten under Blanc.
