Would’ve guessed losing to Mexico would be the high water mark of the France national team’s weekend? Prior to Sunday’s mutiny and Saturday’s expulsion of Nicholas Anelkavv, team harmony had already been compromised claims the Mirror’s Derek McGovern :

Apparently the unrest in the French camp is down to one man “ bullied midfielder Yoann Gourcuff. When chief tormentor Franck Ribery arranged a night out at a ˜gentleman™s club™ for the French players, Gourcuff opted to stay at home. Ribery allegedly confronted him and said: œDoes your mother not allow you to go, you homosexual slut?

A reasonable question, reasonably delivered.
