Tomas Hubschman: England training plans give France advantage

Shakhtar Donetsk defender Tomas Hubschman predicts that England may regret their decision to stay outside of the Ukraine during the group stages of this summer's Euro 2012.

Shakhtar Donetsk defender Tomas Hubschman has predicted that England's decision to stay outside of the Ukraine will put them at a disadvantage in this summer's Euro 2012.

Despite being drawn to play all three of their Group D fixtures in the Ukraine - two in Donetsk - Three Lions bosses have organised accommodation and training facilities over 800 miles away in Krakow, Poland.

Group rivals France will stay in Donetsk and train at Shakhtar's Kirsha Training Centre, which Hubschman thinks will allow them to prepare much better than England.

He said: "I am not a France supporter but I can tell that you this is a really good facility, which is why I tell you they have a really good advantage.

"We will see how England perform during the matches, but as a football player I can tell you that it is not very good to always be on the move.

"You have to change from aircraft to coach and you cannot concentrate. It takes energy out of you."

Hubschman will be representing the Czech Republic in the tournament.
