France did something that no other European country had ever done before – they came back from a 2 goal deficit to beat Ukraine 3-0 in Paris last night, and sensationally make it through to the finals of the World Cup in Brazil next summer
Celebrations after France’s 3-0 win in Paris last night
And when you remember that Ukraine were unbeaten in all their 11 games this year, having won nine of them, and they hadn’t conceded a goal in their last eight games, that’s some achievement by the French side – and it was certainly a thrilling game to watch.
This is what Newcastle’s midfield star had to say about last night’s game:
“Such a turnaround is unique.” “We did it. This is perhaps the best match of my career.” “I think we deserve to be going to Brazil.”
Yohan’s right – France do deserve to be in the World Cup finals and both Yohan and Mathieu Debuchy had very good games for France last night.
And Yohan (along with Loic Remy, Moussa Sissoko and Mathieu Debuchy) probably had the day off from training today, but they will be back at the training ground tomorrow to prepare for the visit of Norwich City on Saturday afternoon – and that’s a game we are all hoping we can win.
In fact 73% of readers expect us to win, and only 12% expect Newcastle to lose the game.
So Norwich will be difficult opposition on Saturday, and it could well be another banana skin – much like the Hill City game became.
