Diabolical wasn't it.

Though for the sake of superstition I'd just like to say that I sat down to watch the game minutes before Beckham missed the penalty, and it kind of tailed off from there :-)

France were the better team. England scored with a free kick and decided just to defend the rest of the game. They were punished for it.

And by the way, the ITV commentator mentioned 1966 before five minutes had passed. As usual. And they wonder why people like it when they lose. :)

@kenny

yet more anti-english nationalism i see.

Did you watch the same game I watched? England were all over france.

France scored form a free kick and a penalty.  Feck all to do with
France being the better team.  Check the Opta stats in the papers
tomorrow, they'll show that Engalnd dominated the game for most of it.

Yes, as a matter of fact I did watch it. France did virtually all of the attacking, especially near the end of the match. According to the stats (you can look them up on the BBC) they had more shots on goal, more shots on target, had more possession and won more corners. England defended deep, and though their defence was solid, they did little decisive to counterattack after the excellent Beckham free kick that got them the goal. There wasn't any question mark over either penalty, either. Its funny how virtually all English supporters seemed to say that "England were all over France" when the stats obviously show the opposite was true.

France seemed flat at times but they still played better.
They were the better team and deserved the victory, although the commentators had already started to praise their, and I quote "10 heroes" near the end of the match. So take your accusations elsewhere, please. England were fairly beaten.

Watched the match with GadgetMaster - we were late and joined just before the first goal - 5 mins later and we would have missed it :-o

We seemed to have them on the run after that for the rest of the first half. Later, things seriously declined amd much as I hate to admit I kind of agree with Kenny. The second half was largely dissapointing - seemed England were playing defensively for most of it instead of making the most of the early lead.

Hoya!

OK, so France is supposed to be the best team in the World, right?

Well, maybe they won in 1998 but since, they have NOT been that brilliant.

Anyway, it is just sport, the best team, during the match, deserves to win. It just does not mean it is THE best team!

And... Don't worry bowler hats; the French are rubbbish at cricket ;-D

Q. Where does Beckham get most of his goals?
A. Free kicks.

Are you saying that England are a bad team now? :-P

"People"? You mean Scots. Its the Scots who like it when England lose. And everyone knows that this is pure jealousy as Scotland has a poor football team. ;)

Talking about cricket, I watched some yesterday and I have NOT been able to figure out the rules...

So basically a guy throws the ball, another hits it, THEN???

You run to the other wicket.  This counts as one.  The team with the biggest score wins :-)

Like baseball but without the diamond :-D
