Domenech hints at changes

France coach Raymond Domenech has admitted that he may make changes to his starting eleven after Les Bleus started Euro 2008 with an unconvincing goalless draw against Romania.
The stalemate left Domenech's side with it all to do in Group C, with a clash with an eye-catching Netherlands side next up on Friday and the tactician is considering making changes to his misfiring line-up.
He admitted: "I have a small idea of the team I will select.
"For once, I will be honest and tell you that I'm hesitating over four positions. After every game I try to think of small modifications that might improve the team, so this is not a great change.
"But I also think that stability is important in international football and won't start chopping off the heads of my players because we only got a draw against Romania.
"It's especially important to have stability in defence, I rarely make changes there. But I'll make the decisions I think will strengthen the team collectively.
"Efficiency is the key and we're having difficulty in this respect. We've been playing good football, creating chances, but not finishing the moves off.
"Our aim is to remain solid but be able to score at any moment."
