the France-Croatia match was kind of sloppy. some fine skill from Zidane, as always. it was his free kick that brought the first goal, off a Croatian player's foot, and not long after he made an outrageous flick pass with the outside of his boot that should have been a goal, only his teammate missed the resulting header. Desailly and Silvestre proved that they're too old and too pedestrian, respectively, to play with the French and were responsible for the penalty and the second Croatian goal. And yet another defensive error let France draw equal, this time a lazy backpass that David Trezeguet intercepted and tapped into an empty net.
