France held to a 0 – 0 draw by Romania


Domenech World Cup runners up France produced a boring display against Romania which makes qualifying tough for them in the group of death. They created very few clear cut chances and lacked there attacking rhythm. In the absence of Viera and Henry, the job was left on the youngsters but they failed to shine. With Henry absent, Anelka and Benzema started the forward line but they failed to provide any decent chance and Anelka could have done better with the few scoring opportunities that he got.

Romania also didn’t threaten much but they would be very happy considering that they prevented France from scoring and took a point of them. The only positive that France can take from the game is the link up play between Ribery and Benzema. Anelka was again out of form and i will be surprised if he is included when Henry is fit. But it is going to put doubts over whether France have enough quality to win the Euro 2008 or not. With there remaining matches against Italy and Netherlands, it is going to be a tough ride if they wish to qualify. Although for the underdogs Romania, it is a great result.
