Goal Line Technology Takes Its Bow In France's 3-0 Win Over Honduras

  • Rick Chandler

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.

It’s been all France so far … Benzema scores on the penalty kick late in the first half.

Great save by Honduras just now.

Technical difficulties at the stadium, we’re told.
