WC: SUI 0 – 0 FRA: 30th minute
France has been unable to do anything. The most interesting thing about the game so far is the announcers talking about Barthez dating Madonna and the effect it had on his game. Classic announcer banter.
With Zidane and Henry, the French should be mopping up this Swiss team. No offense to the Swiss, I lived in that beautiful country before and hope to again, but they just don’t stand on the same pitch as the French stars. It seems to be a matter of finding their rhythm. As the game moves on and the players get used to the WC pace and the atmosphere of this stadium, the French will almost certainly take over.
