In what could be a major blow to the French team, Zinedine Zidane suffered a small tear in his thigh muscle which could sideline him for the first game against Senegal and depending on the severity of the tear a lot longer.....tough blow for the French.
He said in the old days the injuries were much less common.
Today we have all this technology and all this training techniques and regimens and medicine and these finely tuned athletes are dropping like flies.
They should give them real training and proper discipline.
Look to the left of this message. Now that is proper training and that is how one ensures your lads will be prepared for a fight, battle or heck even a tourney.
i hope ZZ's injury is not that serious because to have him miss an extended part of this world cup would be bad for the whole sport of soccer! Zidane has proven over the years to always be a healthy and reliable superstar unlike many of his counterparts and his wizardry on the ball coupled with his great physical strenght make him a force in todays game! even though im not really fond of him and his style he is todays new age soccer machine! and he is the best at what he does no other midfielder has been as consisten as he has for the last 5 years! Rivaldo, Figo(i like his style), Beckham, Totti, Veron etc... have all had thier moments but not 1 of them compare to Zidane for now at least lets hope no more stars fall out of this all important tournament! i want to play an opposing team when they are at full strench and beat them! thats what makes competition so fun! like in 98 against Netherlands! what a game
Ye thic WC has so far made more headlines in relation to injuries as opposed to anything else.. there have been so many of em
But honestly i know this might sound crude but i really couldnt care less how many injuries other teams have and to what players.. yes it does take away from the tournament but what can you do.. im greedy, all i give a toss about is Croatia
