On the other hand they have been handing out Qatari passports like candies, thus creating a 'new national squad' for this occasion.
And there's rumors Ecuador has been paid 7.5 million for the first match to be a guaranteed win.
hahaha going to watch this game now just to see :plus1:

Yep. That was quick.
France coach Didier Deschamps has decided not to replace injured striker Karim Benzema in his World Cup squad, leaving the reigning champions with 25 players for their title defence.

Benzema trained with the squad for the first time since arriving in Qatar on Saturday but was forced to leave the session early with a thigh injury and scans ruled him out of the tournament.

Asked on Sunday by TeleFoot whether he would replace the Ballon d’Or winner in his squad, Deschamps said “No”.

“This is a quality group,” he added. “In everything they do, both on and off the pitch, they are united. I have confidence in them.”

France open their campaign against Australia on Tuesday and also play Tunisia and Denmark in Group D.

2-0 to Ecuador. My, Zero Wins - Zero Goals prediction is looking good!

But wait...there's more. They could even hit the holy trinity of crapiness if the go without a single shot on goal!

4 yellows card tells you a bit about the way they play.

What Western person would want to sit in there?!

They spend 90 minutes pretending to be hurt. In other, actual contact, sports, they spend 80 minutes pretending not to be hurt.

And the soccers don't even touch each other (although I think they might like to).

And they can get right into the ref's face, like a spoilt 7-year old.
