It wasn’t the qualification match I had dreamed of… far from it. Instead of crowing proudly as leaders of Group D into a quarterfinals (and anticipated 2006 World Cup final rematch) against Italy, Les Bleus embarassed themselves (yet again, insert at least we got off the bus jokes here) against Sweden and crawled into runner up status. We made the quarterfinals… but barely. And now we face a difficult game against World Cup Champion Spain. Oh well, Cocorico tout de même. Olé les Bleus? 😉
Looking for a place to watch the France-Spain (allez les bleus!!) on Saturday or Italy-England (Go ENGLAND!!!) on Sunday? I’ve updated my round-up of Euro Cup friendly spots.
