Domenech's unorthodox approach has been criticised
The French Football Federation has said that the contract of France coach Raymond Domenech will be extended.

The 54-year-old, who took charge of the team in 2004, saw his side lose to Italy in Sunday's World Cup final.

"The renewal was unanimously proposed considering the excellent performance of the team in the World Cup," said the head of the FFF Jean-Pierre Escalettes.

The length of the new deal has not been released but will be discussed at a FFF board meeting in August.

After a poor start to the competition in Germany, France produced some impressive displays to reach the final in Germany.

However, they failed to win the World Cup for the second time as Italy won a dramatic penalty shoot-out.
