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!!!

I still think France will qualify by beating Togo but I wasn't really surprised when SK equalised. I had a draw down in my predictions for this game and France hardly looked threatening for most of it. Even the goal was a bit flukely as Wiltord was clearly shooting not passing to Henry (as he should have been).

France are far too reliant on Henry as a lone striker and with the quality they have in midfield should be able to push someone else further up field. They'll probably face Tunisia, Ukraine or Saudi in the next round which is a pretty easy draw and then Italy or Australia/Croatia at which point they'll go out.

I suppose what they really need is a coach with the courage to clear out the old guard.
