France, oh, France...

Well, it took me the best part of 30 minutes to stop staring blankly at the television screen, gather myself, and make it up stairs.

I'm only half-French so can only feel sympathy for the poor football fans in France atm.

What on earth happened? France controlled the match for the best part of 80 minutes - admittedly only 1-nil up which is a score no team should be happy with. They also had a clear goal ruled out which wouldn't have been so important if the South Koreans hadn't gone and scored a complete fluke goal on the 81st minute!

WTF happened???

Now France have to win their final game and hope for a clear win in by one of the otehr teams in their final match. Zidane can't play because of picking up two yellows so if France go out in the first round (repeat of the 2002 World Cup) we've seen the last of Zidane as a French International. What a way to go, with a whimper.

Come on France get your act together.

Christ, and we complain about England - at least they won both their matches!!!

And Portugal. Portugal through to the second stage for the first time in... 40 years.

But I'm a Scot. It's a different picture. The country to qualify for the World Cup but not make the second round most often is Scotland. The country to beat its Fifa world rankings and qualify for the World Cup most often is Scotland. Sometimes over-qualifying (so to speak) can be a curse too. There's the expectation that Scotland will qualify and there's disappointment when we don't. But that's like Luxemburg qualifying, or Northern Ireland qualifying or Malta qualifying or New Zealand qualifying...
