France had this one in the bag. What on earth happened?

A lapse in discipline. It's a shame. France has the talent but so often they let themselves down through something like what happened today.

Wales didn't deserve to win.France dominated but that meathead with the elbow lost them the game.Gonna be a long, unnecessary flight home.

The incident reminded me how the legendary French midfielder Zidane got a red card in the 110th minute for head-butting Materazzi in the Final of the 2006 World Cup. What if Zidane did not make that moronic judgment?
