A Milestone I never thought I'd see

Today France's Vikash Dharasoo became the first player of Indian descent to ever play in a World Cup match. He entered the match in 84th minute and almost scored the game winner in the 89th minute. France and Switzerland drew 0-0 and now the 1998 World Champions have gone four consecutive World Cup games without scoring a goal. France's defense also looked terribly disorganized on set pieces, and despite a missed hand ball in the box, the French must feel fortunate to have escaped with a draw considering Switzerland had the vast majority of good chances in the match.

As someone if Indian descent I'm happy for Dharasoo, but as someone who likes this France team a great deal I am dissapointed they still cannot score a goal and refuse to play David Trezeguet who is one of the most dangerous attacking players in the world. I quite frankly never thought i'd see someone of Indian descent play in the World Cup, but Dharasoo proved me wrong.

France has poor organizations and is relying too much on Henry and Zidane to create chances. The 8 field players are useless.

1000% agree.
