Brazil 0-1 France
Saturday, 1 July 2006

I hope France and Germany advance to the final, they are the two best sides and it should make for a marvellous spectacle.

2200: To Dare Is To Do
Zizou proved his critics wrong, he's been one of the greatest players ever - there hasn't been a player of this generation who comes close to him, including Ronaldinho - France will get to the final but whether they will win it or not is debatable.

2150: xenosys2005
If France play like they did for the first 60 minutes of that tie then they'll win the World Cup, no question.

2130: amorto
I'm hoping Brazil equalise so I can be treated to an extra 30 minutes!

2120: profoundbrayo
Shades of 1998 all over again, Brazil look shellshocked!

2118: makelele6
Zidane is just amazing tonight - Vieria and Makelele have done very well to stop Brazil playing and good to see Henry score.

2100: Africansrule
Zidane is awesome, he's done so many tricks and stuff to make Ronaldhionio dizzy.

2053: Sports-minded
This is probably one of the best matches of this World Cup so far. France deserve to be in front. Those who doubted Zidane and his ability check out tonight: he's easily the best player on the pitch.

Vieira was half a step ahead of both those players. That's a red. Take your pick, one of them is the last man. I'd rather France win with him just getting a yellow though, preventing anyone from claiming France did not earn their win 100%.

2033: TH14THEMAN
This is a boring game. No tempo or atmosphere, though the footy is decent. Why can't Domenech see Henry is isolated up front? Compared to the other games, this is the worst atmosphere yet. Feels like a friendly.

2029: Bluevaio
Even with his old legs, Zidane is teaching Ronnie and Kaka how to play the game.

2019: tiger_soup
This game lacks the tempo of England v Portugal. Ronaldo is definitely short of speed. Not the same guy we know.

2014: The Crippler
Brazil are playing one up front, same as England but then Brazil do have Kaka and Ronaldinho supporting while England have Lampard and Cole! I can see France winning this. Henry will out perform Ronaldinho again.

I'm loving this game, it's being played with smiles and no chess games on either side.

2010: gentrycfc
The thing is about this match is that both teams will not look at this as a route to the semis, but as a route to the final.

2007: Ice Kewell in Anfield
Good luck to both sides, I've a lot of time for both Brazil and France.

2005: manishanish
I am sure France will win this game 2-1.

1919: Besonders
Brazil will pummel France, but the French will survive and apply the killer thrust. They are the Flashing Blade.

1918: for the love of Hod!
Come on Brazil! Ronaldo to score two in revenge for 1998. 2-0 Brazil!

1916: AfricansRule
France for the win, they'll then go on to win the World Cup.
