Every morning, there are 2 boats leaving for Europe, the one on the right to France and the one on the left to Spain. As the migrants come down the dock they are asked if they play futbol. The ones that say yes get put on the boat to the right, and the others are told to take the boat on the left where they can go to sell knock off goods!

And let's not forget what a sad, low quality affair that last World Cup was, with the possibly most unremarkable winners ever. Compare that to Denmark 92 for example, these are proper heroes.


I know you're (half) trolling, but I don't think you know the state of football in France before the late 70s. Laughing  We're talking low participation in the sport, lack of interest from large swaths of the population, shitty infrastructure, no coherent national strategy to promote and professionalize the sport, etc...

The reforms of the 70s essentially birthed modern football in France, and I don't think the NT has underperformed since.

There was a bad patch from 90 - 94 but since 98, things have been smooth as eggs for France NT. Well, smooth-ish. Once you ignore 2002, the mutiny of 2010 and whatever version of France that was 2012 - 2014. France has been steady as she goes and whatever was started in the 70s definitely is paying off now. I think I saw a documentary on it too but I cannot recall much details from it.

Also, World Champions.
