Bon Voyage

France has always been known as a powerhouse in the world of soccer, nearly winning the 2006 Fifa World Cup with a stunning performance throughout the tournament by one of the greatest players of all time, Zinedine Zidane (yes that Zidane). But, in this 2010 World Cup we’ve seen a French side that is, well, terrible. At time, they have been painful to watch. It goes to show you that a team is far more than the sum of its parts and wihtout passion, desire, teamwork and leadership a roster of some of the world’s best is merely that. To add to their problems, their starting striker who plays for Chelsea in the English Premier League was sent home packing following a a halftime dispute with his coach. Anelka was reportedly making “obscene comments”, and was told to apologize by the President of the French Football Federation, and he refused to do so . This is a huge blow to France and significant changes are needed to get them back to being a world-class team. Hope’s for advancing further in this tournament have faded. Will the sun rise tomorrow in France?
