French football team implosion

I don’t know what’s going on with France’s World Cup football (soccer for my compatriots from across the ocean) team, but it seems to be having some serious issues.

First Zizou says the team manager is not a coach and disapproves of the lack of teamwork. Then one of the players, Nicolas Anelka, gets into an argument with the coach, refuses to apologize and is kicked off the team. Anelka’s removal resulted in the team refusing to train. And now France’s team director, Jean-Louis Valentin, has quit.

Zidane has added another two cents saying he believes the team can win against South Africa. But at this point, does it matter? The team sounds like a bunch of preschoolers in need of a nap.
