France boss Philippe Saint-Andre calls on his team to 'give everything' against England at the weekend.

France boss Philippe Saint-Andre has insisted that his team have the tools to secure a positive result against England at the weekend.

France enter the match having lost both of their Six Nations matches thus far, but Saint-Andre is confident that they will rise to the "fantastic challenge".

"We will need to bring enthusiasm and confidence into the game. We will not beat England by doing nothing. Going to Twickenham is a fantastic challenge," he told reporters at a press conference.

"I want to be proud of a team who will go there to give 120% of what they have."

Saint-Andre has been widely criticised for his tactics in the tournament.
