United - Evra Pontificates!

United - Evra Pontificates!

France scraped through to South Africa 2010 by the skin of their teeth.

A dodgy goal, courtesy of a Thierry Henry hand-ball has made them pubic enemy number one.

A recent friendly saw the go down 1-0 to china and already there are muttering about discontent in the French camp.

Our full back, Patrice Evra, believes that the manner n which France qualified should be forgotten and that his side are capable of great things.

Speaking to the media, in an article published in a leading tabloid, Evra had this to say,

"It`s true that we qualified by the back door - but what matters is being there, not the path you took."

"I took the same flight back to Manchester with six of the Irish guys. They were happy for me and told me that despite everything that had happened, they hoped we`d go on and have a great tournament."

"The fact that we needed to qualify via the play-offs simply wasn`t good enough."

"True, we did qualify but we can`t be proud of it."

"Given the quality we have we can`t afford not to have a great World Cup."


Will France provide the tournament with a side that might grace the latter stages or will internal strife ruin their hopes?

Your thoughts please!
