French NT: Training Report

Unlike England, the French NT are surprisingly free from controversy and poor clothing decisions at the moment. And, if these pictures from their training session at Clairefontaine yesterday are to be believed, they are approaching their Euro 2012 qualifier against Luxembourg on Saturday with a killer combo of humour and cuteness – a policy we heartily endorse.

However, the French NT wouldn’t be the French NT if conspiracy and intrigue weren’t abounding somewhere. Here we see (rumoured) former foes Yoann Gourcuff and Franck Ribery joining forces to pounce on a clump of forest-raised facial hair, presumably in an attempt to apply it to an unsuspecting team-mate who will then be in their ‘hirsute homme’ club. Will it be beards or their bad boy behaviour that defeats the unsuspecting Luxembourgers?
And more to the point, we’re thinking Lashes’ new look is probably worthy of a Kickette enquiry in ‘Cescy style’.
Oui or non to Le Beard, peeps?
