World Cup 2010 – Group A highlights
France 0-2 Mexico highlights
Venue Polokwane
17 June 2010
kick off:20:30 CET

France are supposed to have world-class players, but where were they? There’s no harmony, no team spirit, no desire, no will to win – and I’m sorry, most of that comes from the coach and they get nothing from him

Goal scorers:
64′ [0 – 1] J. Hernandez
79′ [0 – 2] C. Blanco (pen.)
5′ G. Franco
45′ J. Toulalan

78′ E. Abidal

64 mins GOAL France 0-1 Mexico
My word that’s about as tight as offside calls get. Rafael Marquez plays a ball from midfield and with the France defence static and Javier Hernandez either on or offside, the substitute is suddenly 15 yards ahead of everyone else and one-on-one with Hugo Lloris. He keeps his cool to take it around Lloris and slot into an empty net. GAME. ON.

79 mins GOAL France 0-2 Mexico
Wow. France have been absolutely pathetic and Mexico have put them to bed. Pablo Barrera goes round Patrice Evra but is fouled by Eric Abidal in the area, it’s a definite penalty. The veteran Cuauhtemoc Blanco steps up and coolly slots into the corner of the net to spark ecstatic scenes from the Mexicans in Polokwane.
