France coach Raymond Domenech was disappointed with the level of commitment shown by his team during last night’s unimpressive 2-0 win over the Faroe Islands.
Goals either side of half-time from Ludovic Giuly and Djibril Cisse handed France the three points, but the victory was overshadowed by the expulsion of captain Patrick Vieria for diving.
Although the win keeps France on course for the 2006 World Cup finals, Domenech was far from happy.
“In future we have to show more determination in these type of games. That worries me,” said the coach.
“To progress in this type of competition we have to be more committed in attack, in defence. This is different to a league match or a Champions League game. The Faroe Islands showed us what it’s like at this level.”
“I was a little concerned in the first quarter of an hour and again at the start of the second half when “Pat” (Patrick Vieira) was sent off.”
