French Team on World cup
When the world cup started the French team has acclaimed to have soap opera madness. Sadly that end up last weekend. With a 0-1-1 goals France is expected to advance in the round of 16 with a win against South Africa.
As France opened the world cup with an apathetic 0-0 tie with Uraguay, on their second match France falls under the power of Mexican footballers with a 2-0 according to France that hurts not only the players but for the whole French nation.
Now they are looking forward for the win against the African team in their own solid ground. Both are looking forward to a fierce game on Tuesday. At stake for both teams is each of their nation’s pride. For France they only have an outside chance of winning but being pessimistic in every game they will do their best to qualify for the next round. The weight of their nations on their shoulders is used by both teams as their motivation towards the game on Tuesday.
As of what fans can remember the host of the 2010 FIFA world cup has lost to Uruguay with a goal of 3-0. And now the African team is somehow relived when striker Nicolas Anelka of France was sent home due to publicly criticizing Coach Raymond Domenech. "I should be in my room relaxing, but it's not at all like that. That's why I'm sad," France captain Patrice Evra said. "You're a top level player and you can't qualify for the second round of a major tournament? It's unacceptable." The said player refuses to do a public apology even though he was asked by the federation's president, Jean-Pierre Escalettes. With his refusal Escalettes has end up with the decision with full agreement with the coach and members of the French team.
Anelka was sent home against the wishes of the players, who then used Sunday's public training as a platform to protest against Anelka's exclusion — snubbing 200 local fans in the process. Even one French Football Federation official was so angry at the protest that he told the reporters he was resigning. France had only scored one goal in the past five major games now they have to rediscover the technique on how to score a goal without Anelka. France are sitting third in Group A on just one point, with Les Bleus taking on South Africa in their last World Cup group match.
