Oh Dear. How Sad. Never Mind: France exits the World Cup
Well, they cheated to get there, but now they’ve departed in disgrace, with coach Raymond Domenech not even having the courtesy to shake his counterpart‘s hand at the final whistle.
What a pity though that South Africa couldn’t get the goals they needed to progress to round two. Still, at least they, unlike the French, went out on a high.
Meanwhile, Uruguay have won Group A without conceding a goal, and with their round of 16 opponents likely to be South Korea, Nigeria or Greece, look to have a great chance of making it through to at least the quarter-finals.
