France vs Romania – pre game

While I still think France should pull it out, don’t be surprised if they labor or even get turned over by Romania.  Injury reports suggest that Henry and Ribery up front, and Thuram and Gallas in defense, are struggling.  This on top of Vieira being out.  Having said all that, they have a number of experienced younger players who can step in and maybe provide the freshness required after the long season most have played.  I am not sure why Domenech brought Boumsong and not Mexes – he could have used the latter if either of Gallas or Thuram are unavailable.  Boumsong is unreliable no matter his season at Lyon.

1 hour and 17 minutes to kickoff.  A bad start and the next round could be out for one of the teams….
