Good luck Les Bleus

I am not a big soccer fan but when it comes to the world cup I kind of get more involved... Friday night Germany won over Argentina and today (Saturday) France is playing Brazil at 7 pm GMT. Needless to say that everybody will be glued to their TV screen... And if Les Bleus (our national team) win, masses of Parisians will head to the Champs Elysées like last Tuesday, after France won over Spain. I was not there, but my friend and very good photographer, Yannick Duvergé was, and he took this photo and some others. (Photo : Yannick Duvergé © 2006)


  1. Allez, Les Bleus!

    Good luck against Brasil! See you in the final! :)

  2. Good shot Yannick! I especially like the one with the Champagne popping out of the bottle. Good capture!

    Allez les Bleus!

  3. I would prefer to watch this month next Sunday, but ... this is football and the reason we simply adore it!
    I say "Let the best team win",
    my wife says "Allez, allez, allez les bleus"

  4. Sûr qu'une bonne partie de la France va être devant son écran ce soir. Je sens que l'ambiance sera très tendue, je croise les doigts et suis de tout coeur avec Zidane et toute son équipe (bien que le foot ne me passionne pas particulièrement d'habitude. La coupe du monde, c'est différent.)
    Très jolie photo (la plus belle du lot, à mon goût). I see "Monsieur" a de bonnes relations :) (joking)

  5. i was lucky enough to be in france when you beat spain on was hard to sleep though with all the horns from the cars! our coach driver even joined in and tooted people in cars, in bars and on the street as we drove back to the hotel! it's nice to be able to join in with these kind of celebrations...when it comes to football, scotland has never had much to celebrate!

  6. This evening Paris is gonna be empty...
    Everybody will watching TV !!

    France must win, to play the final against Germany.
