Les Bleus frustrated by Romanians

Published Add your comment

France lacked the guile to break down an obdurate Romania side as a turgid Group C opener in Zurich finished goalless.

The so-called ´Group of Death´ got off to a timid start at the Letzigrund, with the French unable to find a way past an opposition who picked up a point they clearly came for.

Clear-cut chances were at a premium, Les Bleus pair Nicolas Anelka and Florent Malouda having the best of them, as defences came out on top in a match to forget for the strikers.
