“Now appearing in South Africa: les Misérables”

The international press is full of French puns and wordplay this morning at the expense of les Bleus. This past weekend saw things going from bad to worse for the beleaguered French side as Nicolas Anelka was kicked out of the squad having reportedly insulted coach Raymond Domenech during the half-time interval of their match against Mexico. The papers speak of “the incredible sulk”, a “French Revolution” and a “Waterloo moment”. MONDAY, 21st JUNE 2010
