  1. Just post your remarks on the game here. Three minutes until game time!!

  2. Well, with a 1-1 Mex-RSA game, anything is possible now!

  3. Morning David – I’m really looking forward to what shape each side employ

  4. I’m just glad that game 1 went the way it did, take some pressure off of us, for now that is. Still, it will be interesting to see what they do employ.

  5. To be fair, I think it’s these two teams who really should go through.

  6. ESPN just said that Evra “was the captain” for today. Does this mean that Henry is on the bench, or just a mistake.

  7. The starters:

    Lloris, Abidal, Gallas, Evra, Sagna, Diaby, Toulalan, Anelka, Gourcuff, Ribery, Govou.

  8. Am I the only one that totally hate Alexi Lalas?

  9. Gourcuff being the #10 today, it will be interesting to see how he does.

  10. I hate these 2 commentators esp. Champion – they’re francophobic

  11. Kick off time!!

  12. Toulalan already with good defensive touches

  13. Looks like the defense in the center (Abidal and Gallas) have tightened up

  14. Govou misses a sitter. Still don’t know if he was clipped a little. Still 0-0/

  15. Looks like France isn’t afriad to play the offsides trap.

  16. Toulalan really playing between Gallas and Abidal, almost like a fifth defender.

  17. Missed the first twenty mnutes….what do you think of the game so far Dave?

  18. Kind of back and forth right now, not too impressive.

  19. they look very short of ideas, lots of crosses with no one in the box…

  20. hopefully the red will give them a chance.

  21. Not so bad considering Uruguay was playing 7 guys on defense for the majority of the time.

    Gignac looked good on his 2 or 3 touches. It was a shame that Raymond only used him for 5 minutes at the end of the match!!

    I liked Ribery’s attacks, although he did lose a few trying to get too fancy.

    Defense played good on the whole, and when they didn’t (like Sagna passing the ball right back to Forlan or whoever), it was lucky for France that Uruguay also knows how to play sloppy.

    All in all, i’m happy that Group A is still all square and open for the taking. Mexico plays a more open, attacking game, and I think it’ll be more interesting, unless Javier Aguirre starts to go catenaccio on us…
