France 1-1 South Korea
Sunday, 18 June 2006

2235: GreekGunner
Whichever way you look at it, France will go through, provided they beat Togo.

2230: lamps8
You could see from the argument between Zidane and Gallas that there is obvious discontent in the camp...

But don't blame Henry - blame the manager! His selections have been awful - I can't believe Coupet is not in goal and not taking Guily is laughable! Plus, why not play Malouda and Ribery - Wiltord has been rubbish.

2200: Bluevaio
Unbelievable - first Ghana beats Czech Republic, then Angola draws with Mexico, then Ecuador, then T&T draws with Sweden, then USA draws with Italy, now South Korea draws with France!! All of this happening in Europe.

Postscript - Viera's header should have stood!

2148: Besonders
Nothing better in football than watching a team of Prima Donnas try to protect a one goal lead for 80+ minutes, and screw it up right at the end!

2140: illuminated
GREAT, South Korea score. Serves France right for trying to play 1-0 football.

2128: Besonders
This match sums up most of the group games in this World Cup - play safe, get the points. If you think you can protect a one goal lead, do so; even if you're capable of banging in another two or three.

I suppose 2002 was an exception, and World Cups don't really get started until the second round.

2115: tiger_soup
After the high of Brazil match, this match is really boring.... The French dont finish quick... no quick passing no creativity... pretty flat-footed match really.

2055: biskot
For me, Malouda is the difference in France today. That boy is developing into a good midfielder, although he's a bit unimaginative and selfish at times. He needs the vision of Zidane to effectively claim that role for himself.

2036: biskot
Vieira's header was a clear goal - you don't need any special technology to see it.

2030: bluvaio
Does anyone think that the Vieira header crossed the line?

2012: The Pain
A class pass (surprising as it was from Wiltord of all people) and then a typical Henry finish thereafter to put France 1-0 up.

2004: MSOB
South Korea have home advantage by the sounds of it. Love those drums!

1930: Saint No Stopping Us Now
South Korea are dangerous. The old men of France are going to have to up their game.
