Fun fact: France is 1-8 in its past nine World Cup group stage games, and will be playing without Franck Ribery against Honduras’ 4-4-2 … or will it be a 4-4-1-1? The answer is shrouded in mystery. What is known is that Los Catrachos failed to win a match in the 2010 World Cup. But this is Group E, (Ecuador and Switzerland are the other teams), the “Group of Life.” So, will we see the World Cup’s first draw?

An own goal (my favorite kind) gives France a 2-0 lead to begin the second half. But why are several commentators saying that it’s “controversial”? Looks pretty clear to me.

The French come out firing to make it 2-0. The through ball was superb. The ball def crossed the line off the 'keeper #FRAHON

It's not rocket science ffs it's over the line so it's goal #FRAHON can't understand why Jonathan Pearce is getting so confused about it

It’s been all France so far … Benzema scores on the penalty kick late in the first half.
Great save by Honduras just now.

France's midfield triangle of Cabaye, Progba and Matuidi is as good on the eye but so vulnerable to counter 'cause they're all playmakers.
