Mexico are definately up for this one,I'm predicting 1-1 and a decider for France against SA.

France definitely chasing shadows for a good deal/most of that half. Very lucky not to be behind already. They have come back into it though and are starting to find their shape. They've only brought it back to evens though, at best, Mexico still looking slightly the better team for me.

Believe it or not, that's actually an improved performance by France imo. I think they've needed to be put under pressure to find their feet in this slightly different shape. They're not missing the fancy dan 'play maker' Gourcouff one bit. Toulalan is having his best game in a while, despite that stupid cynical challenge that saw him predictably and rightly booked.

Is Gallas asleep?

re the shirts, dunno. They seem to like those shirts that show off the 6 pack. It's the electrical tape look that I can't quite fathom. Perhaps they were designed by John Paul Gaultier!!

Deserved on balance of play. Was it offside? The French commentators think so!

That'll make it interesting from here in. Looks like Valbuena to come on... he's a very direct player, expect a few shots. None of this pretty one-two stuff around the box.
