Can FRANCE win this WC?

France has just beaten South Korea 3-2 for his last preparation match... but I must admit France really sucked despite victory.

Our defense has weakened undoubtedly and there is no more the automatism which made this team so competitive.

Morevover, Zidane has been injured (muscular problem seemingly) and we still don't know if he will be able to recover for the first match against Senegal.

Pires, out since a long time, is a player that will be very missed during the World cup.

I am afraid we won't go very far in this World cup, I even don't know if we are able to reach 1/8 finals (ie finish at least 2nd from our group).

I am very pessimistic and I DON'T THINK FRANCE WILL WIN THIS WORLD CUP. :(

I am sure all French bashers are happy of that...

Anyway, our team deserves respect for what it has achieved (ie WC, Euro and conf cup) but every good stories has an end...

We could be the underachievers of this World cup (just hope I am not right...)

Allez les bleus, let's fight till the end!!!

Could this be true...a French fan showing humility? I don't believe it!

Seriously hypno, the French have back up but they won't be the same without Zidane in the line up. Forca Zizou! Let's hope he gets well soon.
The best news I heard was that he'll miss atleast 1 game while most reports say 2 games.

I haven't heard anything that he'll miss more than 2 games. Apparently he's had this thigh muscle injury before so Zizou knows how long it should take.

My prediction: he'll sit out the game against Senegal.
