Gourcuff and Benzema are too far out of their best form this past year to be considered world-class talent right now. They have shown in the past that they have the talent, but they haven't displayed it this past year. Still, they should start for the NT.

Toulalan is a very good DM, but not a world class level. Ribery is an excellent winger, but we know what baggage he brings to the NT. Evra is not the same player for the NT as he is for Manchester United.

I agree that Gameiro should have started instead of Hoarau, who was invisible. Certainly I can't understand why Blanc didn't bring him in instead of Valbuena when Remy got hurt. And even in the second half he'd rather bring Saha in instead of Gameiro. If Remy is unable to play Tuesday, I'm hoping that Blanc will start Gameiro with Saha.

France's qualification is now going to be difficult. They could easily lose their 5th game in a row, which I believe would be a national team record.
