      What's that you lot were saying about Giroud?

      Obviously related to their keeper   :)

      Fookin great goal from the best player on the park, he's been superb all night. We need Jürgen to find a player like that for 10 mill, he must be worth triple that now after this season

      Though he was poor in the first half mate. Superb in the second.

      Great goal.

      Yep, though Greissman and Pogba went off early, Payet was really good all night, and took a cracker of a goal. Fair play to the lad, has been doing it all season for WH, and comes up with the goods when it counted under a lot of pressure in the opening match at home.

      Deserved win for France if not perfect. Settle a few nerves no doubt.

      France were poor, but an opening game by the home team.. so fair enough. They'll come good.

      Huge favour from the rather bias ref though who gave Giroud the goal when he clearly fouled the goalkeeper.

      That pitch at the Stade de France doesn't look perfect. Looks like it's cutting up a bit.
      They've just had 2 years rain in 1 week so not surprised with pitch plus them covers for opening ceremony and dancers would have drawn moisture up.

      Have France no other left backs?

      Evra is abysmal he makes Moreno look like a defender.

      I know mate but there will always be hidden gems.

      We did sign Cou for only £8 million after all.

      Got to admit I have not really seen much of Kante previously and I admit he is a good player as a pure DM, but doesn't seem to offer much else.
      I can imagine him here and the cries of but he never scores   :lmao:

      Decent opener I thought. Payet and Kante continued their marvellous PL form and were France's best players on the night. Romania looked well organised and quite dangerous on the counter too, decent chance of getting out the group. Referee was poor, he wasn't going to give the clearest of penalties before his linesman thankfully intervened.

      Would be worth every penny for the club that pays the 40m :)

      Kante...boy, we should be in there fighting hard to sign him if there's anything doing. Who ever would have thought Leicester would be able to offer CL footy while we can't!

      Evra is abysmal he makes Moreno look like a defender.

      Hard to believe he's still playing (only one with Lloris to have "survived" 2010 world cup debacle).
      I see like half a dozen full backs I'd trust more in our home championship alone (ie : having legs), he's purely there because of his larger international experrience and big club pedigree (while I don't remember he had any really good performance in his last 30 caps or so), and perhaps because he's an ex-Monaco player from the time Deschamps trained them.

      Dzemailli is the one midfielder i thought really stood out. Nice to see a midfielder burst in to the box and get on the end of attacks.

      Hope he knocks one in (for the sake of my fantasy team).
