France will be expected to reaffirm their status as pre-tournament favourites when they come up against debutants Albania in Marseille on Wednesday. Mark Andrews Womens Jersey . After their narrow but merited 2-1 win over Romania on Friday, Didier Deschamps men could clinch a place in the last 16 depending on the earlier result between the Romanians and Switzerland.There is cause for concern, however, as they lost 1-0 to Albania when they met 12 months ago through an Ergys Kace free kick. Indeed, the French also had to come from behind to draw another friendly 1-1 in Rennes in November 2014, with Antoine Greizmann denying Albania their first win on French soil.Even with those recent results in mind, Deschamps will have confidence his team can succeed at the imposing Stade Velodrome. Dimitri Payets late goal gave France a winning start to Euro 2016 The hosts have lost just once in their last 11 matches at the venue - against Argentina in 2009 - and have won each of their last seven home internationals.Albania, on the other hand, will be bidding to avoid three consecutive defeats for the first time since October 2013.Team newsFrance are likely to keep the same starting line-up that beat Romania 2-1 in the Group A opener last Friday. Moussa Sissoko could be called into central midfield should any changes be made.Albania will be without captain Lorik Cana after he was sent off in their opening match against Switzerland after receiving two yellow cards, meaning Arlind Ajeti or Frederic Veseli could replace him in defence.Opta statsFrance have won four of the six matches played against Albania but have failed to win either of the last two meetings (D1 L1).Albania have never scored more than once in a game against France (three goals scored in six matches).Albania have never beaten Les Bleus in France, conceding nine goals across three games and scoring only once in return (D1 L2). Albania lost their opening match against Switzerland and had Lorik Cana sent off in the first half France have played at the Stade Velodrome twice in the European Championships, losing to Czechoslovakia in 1960 (0-2) but beating Portugal in 1984 (3-2). Both games saw them concede twice.France have won their last six games on home soil in the European Championships (5 in 1984, 1 in 2016).France have only kept two clean sheets in their last 17 games at the European Championships (against Romania in 2008 and Ukraine in 2012).Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud - who scored 24 club goals last season - has eight goals in his last six starts for France.Mersons predictionI was quite impressed with Albania in their opening defeat to Switzerland. Even with 10 men they had a right go but just could not stick the ball in the back of the net. However, France got better as their first match went on. The nerves started to disappear and they relaxed a lot more which will help them as the tournament goes on.PAUL PREDICTS: 3-0BettingWednesday nights clash represents the most one-sided clash of Euro 2016 according to Sky Bet, with Albania 14/1 outsiders for the victory. France are just 2/9 for another win and 3/1 favourites to win the competition, with their opponents given the second longest outright price of those in the competition at 250/1.Olivier Giroud heads the first goalscorer market at 100/30 and is being tipped up to do so in a 2-0 France win at 10/1 as Jamie Redknapps tip.Follow France v Albania - and every Euro 2016 game - with our live blog on skysports.com and the Sky Sports apps.

LOS ANGELES -- Vin Scully, one of baseballs most beloved broadcasters, will return to the Los Angeles Dodgers for a record 65th season in 2014. "I can tell you from the bottom of my heart that I have always felt that I am the most ordinary of men who was given an extraordinary break of doing what I love to do at a very early age," Scully said on Friday. "I pray that Ill be allowed to do it for at least one more year. "As far as Im concerned, it could have been one line in the note sheet tonight. But I dont take any of it for granted in any way, shape or form. I know that this miracle was given to me, and I could lose it in 30 seconds between the time I leave here and go up to the booth. Im just so blessed to be doing what I love to do and full of thanks." The 85-year-old Scully said he is quite impressed by what the new ownership group has brought to the Dodgers, along with the energy fans are creating at the ballpark. The club has surged from last place in the NL West to a lead of 9 1-2 games. "I do think that the success of the team had something to do with it," Scully said. "These last 50 games, coming to the ballpark and watching them pull out some miraculous victories, it was so thrilling -- even for someone who had seen however many games Ive seen before. "It became so much exciting again and so much fun. I dont really know how I would have felt had they stayed in last place with 30 some-odd games left. I probably would have come back, anyway, because I love it so much, but this made it pretty easy. And as long as I feel the emotion, I feel like I should be here." Scully began his professional baseball broadcasting career in 1950 with the Brooklyn Dodgers, and he has called three perfect games, 25 no-hitters, 25 World Series and 12 All-Star games. With every passing year, the adoration of Dodgers fans and the city of Los Angeles has humblled him even more and made him want to continue his lifelong passion. Greg Senat Womens Jersey. . "The thought of just suddenly walking away from all these friends in the ballpark, and this great game, and this very exciting team, and this fandom thats so thrilled with whats going on, I thought theres just no way," Scully said. "The best way that I could describe it was the night of the bobblehead, a couple of weeks ago, and they played that little tribute on the screen. And the ovation was overwhelming. I was as close to crying as Ive been in a long long time." Scully will work all Dodgers home games and road games in California and Arizona that arent nationally televised. He will call all nine innings of the teams television broadcasts on Time Warner SportsNet LA beginning in 2014, with the first three innings of each of his games simulcast on the radio. When Scully began broadcasting, the Dodgers had yet to win a World Series. Three years later, at 25, he became the youngest person to broadcast a World Series game. In 1955, he had his most memorable moment behind the microphone, as he called the Dodgers only championship in Brooklyn. "The Dodgers are overjoyed to have Vin back with the team in 2014," Dodgers Chairman and Owner Mark Walter said. "Vin IS Dodger baseball. The Dodgers, the sport of baseball and the city of Los Angeles are extremely fortunate to have him in our midst." Scully also has called Dodgers World Championships in 1959, 63, 65, 81 and 88, and he was elected the top sportscaster of the 20th century by the American Sportscasters Association. "Vin brings a unique perspective to Dodger baseball," Dodgers President and CEO Stan Kasten said. "Everyone in the Dodger family and within the sound of his voice benefits each and every time we are afforded the opportunity to hear him call a Dodger game.
