France Scrape Through

Group G Match

Togo vs France
Kln

Previous Encounters:
Togo and France have never met before the Germany 2006 World Cup Finals.

The match:
A good attacking start from both sides. France need to win and Togo want to send them home.

Despite numerous chances it just didn't click for the French as chance upon chance went begging. Perhaps they were just too eager to score.

France will feel seriously disappointed that they couldn't get past Kossi Agassa and you start to wonder how their confidence must be starting to suffer.

Half-time: (0:0).

France tried to play short corners at the start of the second-half, but they didn't work either; as Trezeguet shook his head in disbelief at yet another blocked attempt.

Franck Ribery too, wasted another good chance for France. The longer the game went on, the more anxious the French became. They badly needed a goal.

Finally, a huge sigh of relief in the 55th minute, as Franck Ribery jiggled into the area to set up birthday-boy, Franck Ribery.

Six minutes later, Vieira turned provider as he headed down for Thierry Henry do a half-turn and stride past his marker.

France could relax a little but the French fans didn't like that and started to whistle; they wanted more goals.

Final Score:
Togo 0 - France 2
