    Government probe into France's World Cup campaign


    Domenech dropped Evra to the bench for the game against South Africa

    France's disastrous World Cup campaign will be the subject of a government enquiry, Patrice Evra has revealed. Striker Thierry Henry held talks with President Nicolas Sarkozy after the Les Bleus arrived home on Thursday. And captain Evra said politicians will quiz the squad over the infighting which overshadowed their tournament.

    Evra, meanwhile, added the players' training boycott in protest at the decision to send striker Nicolas Anelka home was wrong, branding it "clumsy". ​

    Anelka was dismissed for allegedly abusing coach Raymond Domenech at half-time during France's 2-0 defeat to Mexico, prompting the strike ahead of their final Group A game against South Africa - a 2-1 win for the hosts - last Tuesday. ​

    Evidence of the tension within the squad was captured in television footage which showed Evra involved in a heated argument with fitness coach Robert Duverne prior to that abandoned session. ​

    French Football Federation (FFF) managing director Jean-Louis Valentin quit his post in exasperation while the French media savaged the players' course of action. ​

    "We regretted the impact it had," reflected Manchester United left-back Evra. "But we were in such a state that sometimes, for love, you can do clumsy gestures." ​

    Even before the Anelka controversy, however, rumours abounded of unrest in the camp, with the team's performances also suggesting all was not well under Domenech's reign. ​

    The 2006 finalists' uninspiring 0-0 draw against 10-man Uruguay was followed by insipid displays in their losses to Mexico and Bafana Bafana.​

    The FFF has promised to meet in July to discuss events in South Africa, however, the decision to launch a governmental probe has added yet another dimension to this embarrassing and seemingly multi-faceted episode. ​

    "Each one of us will say what they experienced and will say the truth," Evra told French television channel TF1. ​

    "Everyone will give some information from each angle and all sides." ​

    Evra, though, was in no mood to impart his version of events at this stage. ​

    "It's not the time to stoke up the pain of all the French people," he continued. "It's not now that you have to attack whoever it may be. ​

    "No-one is clear-headed enough to say what really happened because the scar is still open and we are all hurting at the present time." ​


    Henry was quizzed on a French TV show

    Henry, who featured only from the substitutes' bench against Uruguay and South Africa, was slightly more forthcoming when interviewed on Canal+ shortly afterwards. ​

    The 32-year-old, a veteran of France's 1998 World Cup-winning side, suggested that he felt "isolated" in Domenech's squad.​

    I could have been the older brother but I wasn't anymore," commented Henry. "I felt isolated, it doesn't matter who by. ​

    "They didn't talk to me as they used to. Before they talked to me more. But when you don't have credibility in a group any more it becomes difficult." ​

    The Barcelona forward, however, played down the significance of the Anelka affair as an influence on the team's demise. ​

    "I don't know whether the Anelka matter was the triggering factor," the former Arsenal striker added. "There was certainly a sickness. ​

    "But I don't think you can talk of clans. I can tell you that I never saw any fights, I didn't see anyone put any pressure on whoever. ​

    "Decisions were group ones. The main reason for this fiasco is that we didn't play well. Unfortunately we entered into debates, invented stories." ​

    Henry concurred with Evra that the decision not to train in the wake of Anelka's exit was "an error" but maintained his former Gunners team-mate was badly treated. ​

    "We had to show our support for Nico because it wasn't what he said," Henry continued.
    "We knew that he was going to be sent home the next day, without consulting us. ​

    "They could have talked to him, suspend him from the rest of the World Cup but let him stay with the team. ​

    "But to send him home like that! I had the story of the handball. I was all alone, and I know what that's like. ​

    We couldn't leave a team-mate like that.​

    Kazi kwelikweli!!
    Nafikiri hili la kutokufanya vizuri lilitegemewa na wengi. Kocha wa South Africa aliwahi kusema hata kabla fainali hizi hazijaanza kuwa France haikustahili kuwepo katika mashindano haya, reason behind it ws very clear, walibumbabumba kuingia fainalini. Hii ilijidhihirisha tena pale baada ya game yao kuisha huku SA wakiwa na ushindi wa 2-1, Kocha wa France alipokataa kupokea mkono wa Kocha wa SA, kimsingi pale kacha wa SA alikuwa anang'ang'aniza kukumbushia aliyoyasema just before the starting of the tournament.

    Kiukweli ni mbaya lakini ni vizuri kujifunza katika jambo hili. Ninachojua tunge tungekuwa ni sisi wa-TZ pasingeshikika, ingekuwa hoo ushamba, mara kiwango kidogo, wengine less discipline, ugeni wa mambo na mengine kibao.
