30 French Soccer Players

FRANCE JUST RELEASED its list of 30 provisional players who have made the cut for the World Cup 2010 team. Without going into detail, the team doesn't look like it's going to scare anyone. The list must be cut to 23 by June 1.

I will be rooting for the USA, of course. But I'll also be pulling for Les Bleus since I'm currently a resident of France. I'm also not a soccer expert by any stretch of the imagination, but one thing I can tell you after watching France's qualifying games last year: they don't look great. They got into the tournament because of a freaky hand-ball by Thierry Henri, but what really struck me about their matches was that they were quite a boring team to watch. No spark! No young gun coming up and wowing you!

Could be an early exit in South Africa, but we'll have to wait and see.

I would have appreciated a shirt this size being available when we were there after our luggage was stolen

Pfff, American are always lucky, this draw against England just pissed me off! I woke up at 4.30AM in Australia to watch this match...
