They Finished 6th: FRANCE

Yes! I predicted this lot would get knocked out in the quarter-finals, and I have to make a big deal about this as very little of what I've predicted has come to pass, header, shoot or score.

France is a national team rebuilding, after the utter shambles of World Cup 2010. Laurent Blanc certainly looks like the man to do it, although his team didn't really show any fight or bite or desire, or belief that they could beat Spain.

Wasn't impressed with Benzema or Ribery, the big names the French nation relied on to get them through. It's already been 12 years since the French completed the World Cup/Euro double. On this evidence, it looks like it will be a lot, lot longer before they get anywhere close to replicating that achievement.
