The second semi-final of the 2006 World Cup brings us the
France match. The ex-world champions played with confidence against Brazil and are looking forward to this game. Portugal on the other hand, struggled to beat England but see the return of 2 of their best players, Deco and Costinha. The tradition of France vs. Portugal matches heavily favors the Blue but Portugal, finalists of Euro2004, are good enough to trouble even the experienced French side.
Match will take place on 14:00 CDT, 5 July 2006
France win 1-0 (Zidane 32 min)
