Stunner! Sacre Bleus!

Argentina nuke France in the World cup opener. It wasn’t just that Argentinean passion prevailed, the French looked rudderless.

Laporte, The Mouth, sat befuddled on the sideline – pondering probably, why he didn’t play his best players earlier, and why he didn’t shift game plans when it was clear the Argentinean’s had enough power up front to take it to them.

When the French turn-up and play they are brilliant. When they don’t, things go south fast. Does this mean we will see France in Cardiff? Maybe, but they’ll have to get past Ireland first. If there are two teams who will be massively motivated by today’s game it will be Ireland and Italy – The Argentineans just showed them both that even great teams can fall on the day.

This in no way spells the end for France – it’s the second time that the hosts have lost the opening match. The last time was in 1991 when England lost to New Zealand. Remember what happened – England made the World Cup final, New Zealand did not.

    France can classify if they beat Ireland, but even if they do it but are the second in the group, they will play against the All Blacks, and that’s what they worry them the most.
