Yohan Cabaye had a great game for France last night in their six goal 51 minute demolition of Australia in Paris last night in a friendly, and in addition to Yohan, Mathieu Debuchy and Loic Remy started the game for France, and Moussa Sissoko came on very late in the game, so all four Newcastle players called up for the squad played last night.
Yohan Cabaye after scoring great goal for France
Of course the important game is in Paris on Tuesday night against Finland, and Yohan Cabaye and Loic Remy are almost certain to start that game, and Mathieu Debuchy had a very solid game and scored a great goal.
So it’s not beyond the realm of possibility that all four Newcastle players could start France’s final game in their group.
Alan Pardew was hoping yesterday that Cabaye would get battle hardened with two games for France during the International break, and he scored a wonderful opportunist goal last night, the best goal of the game, and Debuchy scored the second best – but maybe there’s a little prejudice there.
If Yohan can show the form he was in last night when we meet Liverpool next Saturday afternoon, we may be able to make a game of it, but I have to confess I’m still just a little bit worried about our defense.
Here’s the video of all the goals – the second one by Giroud is good – but listen to the roar when Yohan scores his fantastic goal – you need real skill to score a goal like that!
