What a shame, for a proud soccer country like France to be chased out of the World Cup in such a manner. Such humiliation! How bad was it that French Supporters were cheering for the South African team against their home country’s? Good thing these players weren’t the Colombian team – otherwise drug lords’ hitmen would be welcoming them.
Arrogance and pride came before their shameful fall. Despite having players that play for world class teams like Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea and Barcelona the French failed to impress as a team let alone as athletes or even soccer players. They showed horrible sportsmanship and behaved far worse than spoiled little children. Their coach refused to shake hands with the South African coach!
Last World Cup the French team was the best one – this year, clearly the worst.
Their heads bowed, their faces grim, this is the French team boarding a plane in South Africa last night just hours after crashing out of the World Cup.
The team flew out of Bloemfonteim after losing 2-1 to hosts South Africa in a game that was so dismal their own fans began cheering for the opposing side.
Now the England team must battle to avoid a similar fate this afternoon in what skipper Steven Gerard has called a ‘do or die’ match against Slovenia.
The British World Cup bid has gotten off to a stumbling start, and the team must win today if it is to make it into the final 16.
