World Cup 2010 - if France played in that manners against Uruguay, they will never win the world cup
Uruguay's defender Maximiliano Pereira (L) and France's striker Franck Ribery eye the ball during the Group A first round 2010 World Cup football match Uruguay vs. France on June 11, 2010 at Green Point stadium in Cape Town.
France's striker Nicolas Anelka (L) and Uruguay's defender Mauricio Victorino head the ball during the Group A first round 2010 World Cup football match Uruguay vs. France on June 11, 2010 at Green Point stadium in Cape Town.
Les Bleus can forget to ever win the 2010 World Cup if they played like some 3rd world country during the 0-0 draw against Uruguay in the Group A match on June 11, 2010.
It was dissapointing for Les Bleus fans, but not for me because i am a Brazilian fan!!
During the disastrous 2002 World Cup in Korea/Japan, France, the then defending champion started very badly, losing 0-1 to Senegal, before drawing 0-0 with Uruguay and lost to Denmark 0-2 in the final game.
France - the then reigning World Cup champion, exited the 2002 world cup without scoring a goal, earning just 1 point!!! Even the likes of Zinedine Zidane, Thierry Henry and David Trezeguet could not save the Muskeeters - Les Miserables!!!
In the 2006 World Cup in Germany, France also started badly, drawing 0-0 with Switzerland and 1-1 with South Korea in the first 2 matches. They only earned their tickets to the knock out round after dismantling lowly Togo 2-0. The rest was history, in the knock out stage, France trounced Spain 3-1, Brazil 1-0 and Portugal 1-0 before losing 3-5 on penalties to Italy after the score was deadlocked at 1-1 after extra time.
In the current 2010 world cup in South Africa, France drew 0-0 with their old 2002 nemesis - Uruguay. Remember France also drew 0-0 with Uruguay in the disastrous 2002 world cup. Will history repeat itself?? Les Bleus will be Les Miserables...
