I see from the BBC’s football gossip column that:
French coach Raymond Domenech knows exactly why his side failed so miserably at Euro 2008. It was the team’s hotel. “The layout of the hotel was all wrong,” he said. “It was in a kind of cul-de-sac with only one route in and out. Plus, there were no proper directives from the Swiss about gatherings of people watching us eat.” (Daily Express)
Actually, no. I think he’ll find that, if he’s honest, the real reason that they failed is because they didn’t try hard enough. The French are one of those teams that seem to think that all they have to do is turn up at a tournament and they’ll do well. Also, they are not helped by the fact that some of their players are clearly past their prime and have lost their va va voom!
And really, that was the first site that came up when I googled “va va voom” 😉
