England's preparations for their opening match against Russia could be disrupted, after UEFA opted to house the team right next to a fan zone where up to 80,000 French fans plan to party until the wee hours of the morning.

According to The Guardian, Marseille's fan zone is set up directly across from Golden Tulip Villa Massalia, the four-star hotel which UEFA have assigned to Roy Hodgson and the lads.

The fan zones are supposed to close at midnight but Uefa say "exceptions will be made on certain nights" to keep them open longer, and Friday is the one occasion in Marseille when they have permission to continue until 1am.

The opening game will be shown on two screens, and the festivities will be capped off by an artist called Cerrone, who is regarded as "the master of French disco." Quelle discothèque. England should anticipate a headache to a dubstep beat in the morning.
