France out of the world cup and with the worst result of the group with just a single goal which happened finally after the inclusion of Henry in the center of the attack and Ribéry and Malouda on the flanks.
This exclusion was meant to happen before even the world cup took place on the 11th of June. It’s started with France wanting to keep Raymond Domenech after the disgraceful performance of France in the Euro 2008 and later with the strange selection of the team with lot of players being under performer in their parent clubs.
Personally my selection would have been different but let’s use the one that he took in the 23 men squad. Starting with the back, lloris, Evra, Abidal, Gallas, Sagna, in midfield, Gourcuff, Henry, Diaby, strikers, malouda on the left, Cissé in the center and Ribéry on the right. Henry as we all know can not run too much now but as a vision of the game not many in this team have. He also come from Arsenal where he learned a lot and could have make the game happen. It’s a shame that the world cup for him end up like that and i will blame Domenech for that.
At least they made a lot of high profile scandal to be remembered of in this world cup which stand for me as the worst one i have ever watched. and to top the cake, Domenech didn’t even great Carlos Alberto Ferreira because he heard him say that France didn’t deserve to qualify for the world cup. I don’t think South Africa even deserve to be there as well even if they’ve put in some great performance as they didn’t even qualify for the African cup. But as host country this is what you get to have and they deservedly got what they paid for. Hosting the competition for a first round participation :). France reputation won’t be too much tarnished as this will make the headlines :”South Africa, first country in the history of football to host the competition and being dump in the first round”.
