Romania's conservative approach against World Cup finalist France worked Monday in a 0-0 draw in Group C, considered the toughest in the European Championship, AP reported.

The undermanned French, without captain Patrick Vieira and leading scorer Thierry Henry, dominated possession, but failed to penetrate a stiff Romania defense devised by coach Victor Piturca. France showed little flair on attack.
