First, it was Senegal, an ex-colony, that kicked their asses. Now, the French played against Uruguay, with one player getting carded, and couldn’t score. So, just to qualify for the next round, they’ll have to beat Denmark by at least two points. “Thursday’s results mean Roger Lemerre’s side are in danger of becoming the first defending champions to fail to make it to the second round since Brazil in 1966,” says the BBC. Ouch. And it doesn’t look like Zineddine Zidane will be playing. France face anxious wait.

Good news though: The US team actually beat Portugal, in yet another upset. They won 3 to 2. Next stop, Korea. USA Stun Portugal.
