Mainad, for Germany and Argentina to meet in the final one would have to finish 1st in their group and the other 2nd.

It will be a Germany vs. Argentina quarter-final.

Much as I like French culture, somehow I cannot get behind their soccer team. Must be all that corn-braided hair. Those give me the heeby-jeebies.

I have the same feeling for Mexico. Love them but I can't stand its football...

Now, I just want Uruguay to defeat them and France/South Africa to defeat the other so Mexico could be outside. But I think it will be difficult after the goal difference. Anyway, Mexico will be defeated in second round as always :D

i can't get over how much of a hypocrite you are. You complain about people being mean on these forums, yet you act like the biggest bitch in town. The fact you revel in a teams defeat because of a personal dislike of me, shows how petty you really are. Get a grip. As for the french team, they played awful. Lacked desire, cohesion and drive. They are just not good enough for this world cup. Good luck to the teams that do qualify from this group.. they'll have deserved it.

Brazilians don't like France for obvious reasons in football. It's hardly surprising. I'm sure a lot of people are enjoying England's problems by the same token.

Report: Anelka Launches Verbal Tirade at Domenech

http://abcnews.go.com/Sports/wireStory?id=10959442

Reports of Nicolas Anelka's expletive-filled tirade at coach Raymond Domenech have highlighted mounting tension within France's World Cup squad.

French sports daily L'Equipe reported Saturday that Anelka insulted Domenech at halftime of France's 2-0 loss to Mexico on Thursday when the coach ffered him some tactical advice.

L'Equipe said Domenech snapped after being insulted by Anelka, who was then replaced by Andre-Pierre Gignac.

French federation vice president Christian Teinturier thinks Anelka should have either apologized or been sent home.

"If, effectively, the words I'm hearing are true, he shouldn't be there anymore," Teinturier said on France Info radio. "If those exact words were said, I can't understand why he was at training on Friday.

"He should have been thrown out straight away or apologized. Otherwise he shouldn't turn up again wearing a France training top."

Anelka was snubbed by Domenech four years ago when he did not make the World Cup squad, even when striker Djibril Cisse was injured on the eve of the team's departure to Germany. Domenech took Sidney Govou instead in 2006.

But the Chelsea striker was a starter in all the warmup matches before this World Cup, and he also started France's opening match, which finished 0-0 against Uruguay.

The latest reports of a rift follow newspaper allegations that midfielder Yoann Gourcuff is an unpopular figure on the squad and that defender William Gallas is upset with Domenech for giving the captain's armband to Patrice Evra.

Calls to the France team's press officer seeking comment on the reports were not immediately returned.

Only a handful of French players spoke to the media after the Mexico defeat left France staring at elimination four years after losing to Italy in the World Cup final.

France needs to beat South Africa convincingly Tuesday, and hope Mexico and Uruguay don't draw their final game, to have any chance of qualifying for the second round.

Toulalan, one of only a few players to speak after the Mexico match, fears the team is now a collection of individual talents with no camaraderie whatsoever.

Toulalan added that "everyone has to do their own self-analysis" and that things will only improve if "everyone is honest (with themselves) and understands what they did or did not do."

Toulalan would not talk about squabbles within the squad.

Some reports have alleged that Gourcuff sometimes eats alone at the dinner table, and that Ribery and Anelka do not like him and pressured Domenech to drop him against Mexico.

Gourcuff was replaced by Florent Malouda, and did not play in the match.

In the opening game against Uruguay, Anelka had a clear chance to pass to the unguarded Gourcuff during the first half but chose not to. Gourcuff threw his arms up in the air.

Toulalan, a close friend of Gourcuff, said players should always behave professionally, no matter what their differences.

"We can't all be the best friends in the world," Toulalan said. "But there's no way I'm going to go out on the pitch with the idea that I'm not going to pass to this player or that player."

Gourcuff said after the Mexico defeat he was being made a scapegoat for the team's inability to score goals.

"It has been a collective failure over the two games. Football is hard when you can't play together," Gourcuff said. "Perhaps I have paid the price, I don't know. I've not had any explanations."

And it's confirmed he's been sent home.

Rumours doing the rounds that other players are ready to follow.

"Word here in France is that several players are ready to come back home today. The Anelka story just the tip of the iceberg."

Michelle, c'mon, read any news about Brazil and you'll see that because France won many games against Brazil, Brazilians hates France in soccer. Nothing further.

I don't have nothing against you!!! I never talked to you, girl!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You are overreacting, Michelle.

Indeed, I don't have nothing against the country France. My car is a Peugeot 207, and I love Peugeots!

I, simply, don't like France in football because of 86, 98 and 2006.

And, know what? I hate more Portugal in football than France now-a-days.

Now, I talked to you. smile.gifwink.gif

I am not even French, I just work and live there. I am Belgian. But you probably think that is the same country.

Enough. I understand the French football team are awful right now, why keep kicking them? I know what most of the people think of France on this board. There is an anti-French undercurrent, and it's starting to get on my nerves. You, Rob especially..

Enough.

Belgium!!! I loved Belgium team in World Cup 1994!!!

Goalkeeper, Marc Preudhome became a hero here in Brazil after a game he tried to score in the last minutes.

Indeed the neighbourhood I lived in Rio was named after a Belgium navigator: Flamengo.

Michelle, c'mon, you don't need to fight everyone because of football.

We are only joking with rivalries.

I'm so sad there isn't an argentine here to kid with him.

PS: Really, I don't have nothing against France. Only my car in French, my parfum is french, I eat croissant every single day, the name of my wife is french: Louise...
