France enters the Group a match as the team with a greater historic pedigree, though the French squad only reached the World Cup after a controversial hand ball on star Thierry Henry. the play came in a win over Ireland during qualifying last fall, and replays showed a clear handball off of Henry led to the game-winner.
The controversy quickly simmered, as the defeat eliminated Ireland and prompted a furious protest from the Irish side. Ultimately, the outcome was not reversed, and France has earned its fourth consecutive trip to the World Cup.
Though Henry has been in the spotlight most recently for all the wrong reasons, he remains the most recognizable French player and perhaps their best hope of making some noise this year. he scored three goals in two of the last three World Cups and was named to the tournament’s All-Star team in 2006, when he helped France reach the final, where it ultimately lost to Italy.
France has been battling controversy and uneven play since Henry’s handball, so nobody is quite sure what to expect from the club on the big stage.
But we’re about to find out in a few hours.
