    France looks like a one-legged trainwreck

    I thought they were just boring and unambitious, as were their opponents, though they had slightly more excuse. Clearly neither team wanted to risk losing to the other, so they just ended up going through the motions. Apparently it got better the last few minutes after Uruguay were down to ten men, but I'd long since given up in boredom. I don't think I've ever seen two strong international sides displaying such mutually leaden midfield inactivity before.

    France didn't look so bad really though. If they'd pushed up more in attack instead of being so static and uncommitted to actually trying to do anything, they looked like they had enough skill to cause anyone problems. Finishing power is another matter, but that scarcely gets tested when you don't push more than two men into attacking positions against your opponents' 7 man defense very often.

    Is Canada even in this thing?
    Sorry for the n00b comment, not a big soccer/football fan. But I haven't heard anyone say anything about us so I'm curious.

    Lolz...

    The way they won the semi finals and the finals the last time was quite unfair.

    And the finals... What that ass hole did/said to the french captain was racism.

    Not a surprising start for France - they should do better eventually.

    ^ Good thing Maradona is their coach. He would have taught them a trick or two on cheating.
