They earned it. I was hoping for a decent performance today but crap, how can we play so effortless against such a hated opponent? Ronaldo tried to do something, had a good shot on goal, but boy, what a terrible display. Once again, France destroy us.

Not the end of the world anyway, congratulations Zidane.

IMO after the game against Korea Zidane told Domenech:
"Listen you idiot,i am taking over this team!" He did all the job IMO! :junior:

Today Zidane showed Brazilians how is it done! :junior:
France must win this! :bob:

You have yet to meet the "Italian wall." That scary defense is what could lead them to their title. France looked amazing out there though, especially Zidane... France definitely outplayed Brazil today.

We apologize for keeping the yellow too long
Yellow Card
Judging from his style of play, flawless turns and amazing ball control you could say that Zinedine Zidane is the Alpha-Brazilian! Could kick Platini's rear end any day!

Zizou, welcome to the paradise of football.

Brazil didnt wake up at all...

Please dont forget we beat you in the last 2 finals played between us, and that we have 5 WC titles, whilst you have 2. You can celebrate our defeat, but dont forget how mediocre you are. (H)

I think half the world lost its money on Brazil to win the world cup just now. Great solid performance from France, a la Greque I see. France are fast on the counters, portugal better be careful not to commit too many men forward like Spain and Brazil.

Ronaldinho didn't shine in this WC. Maybe he was tired, long season, or maybe he needed a generous player like Eto'o.


Brazil needed more workers and less engineers. They didn't care when they didn't have the ball. They didn't play as a team.

probably.

brazil had been going with two forwards the entire tournament, and now they switch to one. maybe they were playing not to lose? but that's not really their style to play that way.

maybe they're wanting to give ronaldinho more room. i dunno. he was one of the most disappointing players in the world cup. it's not that he played badly, but he wasn't up to his standards.

i just got an email from a friend who live in france, and he says the country has gone mad. i hope zidane's old legs can continue for two more matches.

I won't add insult to injury (before you say anything, no, I'm not happy. It's tough to be happy when all your family and all your best mates are sad), so I'll keep this objective and as unbiased as I possibly can.

1. Zidane. Enough said.

2. Brazil played sh!t the entire tournament. The moment they faced someone who wasn't fearing them, they collapsed.

3. Parreira should have made the subs a lot earlier, though few can say anything about the starting lineup. Ronaldinho to have more freedom, Juninho starting. The only other thing I'd do would be to start Robinho instead of Ronaldo, but that was never gonna happen.

4. France totally deserved it.

5. Ronaldo's dive was ridiculous. Roberto Carlos punching the French was stupid (even though he did reply with a kick). You win, you lose, but you have to do so with class. Diving, cheating and resorting to less than honorable methods to get an advantage is horrible, and make the loss look even worse.
