As predicted in the popular Shocks and Specials article on Newsblaze, France have had a nightmare in this World Cup. They began with a dire 0-0 Draw against Uruguay and tonight, they cemented their troubles with a 2-0 defeat against Mexico.
France have the players and they have the quality, but as anticipated, they do not have the ability to work together as a team and their manager seems to be holding them back with strange and stubborn decisions.
Mexico were playing some stylish football throughout this game but they left it late to get their first goal with Hernandez scoring just after the hour mark. Veteran star Blanco added a second from a penalty with ten minutes to go and Raymond Domenech, the French manager, could do nothing but smile. His team are now sure to head out of the competition and after receiving so much media attention and hatred at home, Domenech will retire from the position.
