The French football (soccer for the US readers out here) team has done it again... after a 34' penalty goal by "Zizou", the Blue team managed to secure its place in the finals against Italy to yield an all european "Mondial" 2006.
3 weeks or so ago, when I saw France play in the first round, tie against the Swiss and S. Korea, I was like ... whatever ... Boring game, no offense, all defense, slow on their legs... and then, something magical happened. Zidane, 34, decided to make this world cup something to remember him by, and he has been playing, well, almost like a God. I can't say the same for Thierry Henri (left flank forward). In any case, 1-0 for France, and they're on to their 2nd world cup final in less than 10 years !!!! (and their 2nd world cup final... period).
Allons enfants de la patrie...............euh, le jour de gloire est .... arrive !!!!!
