Do The French Have A Strong Congenital Disease?

Message  gerardM le Mar 23 Juil - 15:11

Hi everyone,

Again!!

Once again, the French thought everything was done and that they would win the championship! Sure!
Once again the French team was defeated.

I'm speaking about female soccer.
Before the quarters, it was sure! Despite their loss a few months ago when they had a similar event.

Is it a French congenital disease?
Do you think this is caused -on purpose- by opponents?

Decades ago and for decades, the French Rugby team was famous for this weakness: foreign opponents knew this weakness quite well and played so that the French were annoyed, in order to get them sent off the field. This procedure lasted several decades.
This doesn't work any longer in rugby because our players are specially warned and trained.

But it still works very well in other sports.
Male soccer, female soccer, female basketball, athletism... maybe not exactly annoy them but rather persuade them they must win weeks before the end of the contest!!!

scratch 

That's named arrogance!! It works so well: French specialty!! Count our chickens before they're hatched!!

The female French soccer team was defeated in the Quarters yesterday! Shame on us!
I Wonder who said the French were to win: players? journalists?... opponents?
