Watch France vs. South Africa Online
The bottom two teams of Group A, France and South Africa will enter their match each with one draw and one loss, no wins. Host teams tend to always move on from group play, but unfortunately this may not be the case for South Africa. There is little to no chance that either team will advance, so this is a game for pride. In polls, it appears that South Africa is slightly favored to win, but many people also predict that they match will end in a draw. South Africa has racked up cards and now enters this game without their number one goal keeper. France’s downfall may not be what their opponents bring to the table, but their inside drama. Disputes with the coach, feuding, and a weak offense have put France on the self destructive path. France’s top player, Nicholas Anelka, has also been dismissed from the team which sparked protest from his teammates as they refused to train. South Africa’s Bafana Bafana at least has the heart to take down France.
The player who could make the difference for France could be Forward Thierry Henry. As for South Africa Midfielder Steven Pienaar could be the teams play maker.
