thumbnail Hello,

The 58-year-old thought that les Bleus deserved better.

France started their World Cup campaign with a 0-0 draw against Uruguay in Group A  in Cape Town on Friday evening. The Europeans had the better share of possession and created a number of good chances, but failed to score even after Nicolas Lodeiro had been sent off for the South Americans late in the second half.

Speaking to TF1 after the match, France coach Raymond Domenech expressed his frustration at his side's failure to collect all three points.

"With regards to the game, it was frustrating. We said that we wanted to take the moment, but we also said we didn’t want to concede.

"It was tense, but there was something [there]. We had rhythm. We set the pace since the game was blocked by Uruguay. They prevented us from playing."

The afternoon game in Group A between South Africa and Mexico ended in a 1-1 draw, which means that all the four teams in the group have a point each after the first round of matches.
