“Les Bleus Up!”

published 15/07/2016

ProGood attacking side

ConsDivided

So Portugal are European Champions with just one win in six games all tournament, 5 draws not befitting of the prestigious trophy, many would say. Ronaldo seemed destined for glory from day one. A sizable moth delivered the injured Ronaldo a reminder of his cheeky wink after getting Rooney sent...

“Solid start from the French”

published 15/06/2004

ProGreat strength and depth in the squad

ConsToo many individual players

From the evidence of the first 89 and a bit minutes against England, it looked as thought France were going to make another disastrous start to a major Championship. After losing their opening game of the 2002 World Cup, 1-0 to Senegal, they looked set to repeat their feat. Only two last gasp...

“worthy winners”

published 10/07/2000

Prothey're very good

Consthey eat snails

from the moment they began their campaign against the danes, it was clear that this side was the one that others would have to beat in order to win the trophy. a solid defence, stoic yet inventive midfield and blistering attack all combined to give this team the edge they needed to win euro 2000...

“Not good for the fans...”

ConsWinning too much

For one club to be so dominant can't be good for the fans. The Premiership is beginning to become slightly predictable - a word which should never be used in the same sentence of any sport. Man Utd are dominanting the Premiership and English football, so much so they back out of the FA cup. What...

“Zidane is the real asset”

published 29/06/2000

Proeverything

Consperhaps something but generally nothing

France is really the best team at the moment and in the last couple of years in the world football. Portugal has already won against some of the best teams ever, England and even destroyed Germany, but they didn't have much chances agaisnt France. This is not only because the best player ever...

“Champions of Europe”

published 03/07/2000

ProNever gave up.

ConsBarthez can be beaten.

The World Champions looked like going out of Euro2000 to Italy. First Half: The only thing that separates the two sides at half-time is Henry's pace. The lightening speed at which he tries to go through the Italian rearguard has caused Di Biagio and Cannavaro to be booked for clipping him late...

Fabien Barthez is not the tallest keeper around. He is not the most quiet and reserved keeper in the Premiership. He also must give Fergie a few sleepless nights with his antics....BUT You dont get to be a World Cup winner for your country and follow it up in Euro 2000 without being great. Since...

“Undefeatable”

published 20/10/2000

ProQuality throughtout the squad

ConsDon't know how to lose

France boast one of the best international teams in the world currently and despite the retirement of a couple of their best players, they continue to produce more quality youngsters, who are capable to be the very best. Their quality is shown as they won the world cup in 1998 against Brazil...

ProWorld Class Players

ConsWill they work as a team ??

France are many peoples favourites to win Euro 2004. They have world-class players spread around the field, from full back Lillian Thuram, to midfielders Patrick Viera and Zinidine Zidane along with the Irrepressible Thierry Henry. They play the kind of free flowing attacking football that make...

“France Rule The World”

published 05/08/2000

ProChampions of the World

ConsThey're not England

I myself am a England supporter, but you do have to give a lot of credit to France, they won France 98, beating the most famous football team, Brazil... Then a few months ago the won Euro 2000, beating Italy in the Finals... I think that Zidane played the best for France in France 98 and in Euro...

“France to win Euro 2000”

published 25/06/2000

ProDevastating attack - smooth passing

ConsOccasional defensive errors

Without trying to be simply favouritist, France and Holland pose the definite threats to any other team in Euro 2000. But France stand the best chance of carrying the Euro crown home to accompany their world cup. Both teams have shone out in the crowd from the rest of the group, with perceived...

“Joie de football!!”

published 26/06/2000

ProSkilful, controlled and in depth talent

ConsFew

I'm afraid to admit it, but France do look like a credible top European team, capable of winning Euro 2000. Something in me just doesnt want to admit it, but after the performance against Spain, they showed they have the talent. The strikers look confident, able to pass, build each other up and...

“worthy winners of euro 2000”

published 21/09/2000

i still think to this day that france should not have won the euro 2000 in holland. i felt that italy were robbed, and the ref cheated. where the heck did the referee get 4 minuted of injury time from? from what i can remember there were no serous injuries, and only some niggles, enough to give...
