Domenech calls for a miracle
FRANCE require a miracle if they are to reach the World Cup second round, said a visibly rattled and out-of-sorts coach Raymond Domenech yesterday a day after a demoralising 2-0 Group A defeat by Mexico.
The loss appeared to weigh heavily on 57year-old Domenech. “There is a miracle around somewhere, but in any case we are compelled to play for our pride at the very least. I really believed, I was confident, I had genuine confidence in this team. It had real potential, real quality, but it didn’t click into place, it just wasn’t there.
“It is sad, I am sad for everybody, there were so many hopes, so much anticipation, never before have I felt so much of either sentiment around me.” – Sapa-AFP
