in place of whom? Payet or Griezamn? it's a no no. Coman is good as a great sub

Coman (Pogba and Martial?) will be a great coming for France in WC18

With the old 16 team format Ireland would have exited after the group stages. Plus they had the luck of facing an Italy that had nothing to play for.

Los Che Forever Is this Coman guy meant to be good?

Everytime I've seen him, he's been fcukin dreadful.

if they play england next it can be an issue, england has been playing fast on attack, but defending poor too...so could be interesting

Tarik None of the French defenders are decent, especially the fullbacks. Evra is a disaster waiting to happen.

Stephan Well in all fairness it was France who was playing so no real surprises. Expecting some big calls going their way next match as well particularly now when they have 2 starters out in Kante and one of the defender who is rubbish tbf.

A shameful attempt by UEFA to fool people into believing that there won't be any "mistakes" with additional referees on the pitch. Turns out there are still "mistakes" even with 3 pairs of eyes on an action at times.

yeh i agree, most times corners are hard to call (imo) , but this one was so easy, that its rather shocking how none of the refs saw it

u saw it too right? that was a rather shocking call, on an otherwise good referreeing ( ok, hendricks should have gotten 2nd yellow already in xt but...)

Inácio coman and griezman done it, ireland couldnt take them...

not sure why coman doesnt start but hey...ireland put on a lot of effort and was a joy to watch it, the much more rested france (twice as many days as ireland) yet again failed to play well, but the individual talent got the best of it
June 26th, 2016 16:02
Rodriguez Griezmann will rightfully get the plaudits, but Giroud deserves a fair deal of praise for playing some textbook target man football.

Matuidi was immense and outshone his midfield partners, who often get more attention than he does. Pogba conceded a PK, Kante got an unnecessary booking (miss next match) but Matuidi was a boss in midfield.

Tarik Another rather unconvincing performance by France, credit to Ireland who never stopped believing even when their comical defense let them down. France will have lots of problems once they face an actual team that will take the game to them.

Stephan France had 3 extra days rest compared to ireland. All because of this 3rd place nonsense. How is that fair. 3 extra days!

Nerazzurri4life Should have been 4 or 5 for the French in second half

Nerazzurri4life Poor miss gignac
June 26th, 2016 15:43
TheDrone No excuses for Ireland. They got their asses kicked.
June 26th, 2016 15:36
Nerazzurri4life That would have been a great goal for gignac
