To see two big powers debasing themselves in order to eliminate us was a tribute to Algeria.
Naturally today's game was played tactically. But if 10,000 'sons of the desert' here in the stadium want to trigger a scandal because of this it just goes to show that they have too few schools. Some sheikh comes out of an oasis, is allowed to get a sniff of World Cup air after 300 years and thinks he's entitled to open his gob.
Wednesday, theoretically France could lose to Ecuador to make sure they don't play Argentina, should they win (as expected.) This, however, would be blatantly obvious because France would have to drop 7 goals to drop below Ecuador, and would then risk being overtaken by a big Swiss win. So, that's not going to happen.
