Patrick Vieira believes France only have themselves to blame for their faiilure to beat South Korea on Sunday.
France were stunned by a late Park Ji-sung goal and were forced to settle for a 1-1 draw from a game they dominated.
Vieira was unlucky not to have scored for France whe his header crossed the line but the incident was unseen by the referee and his assistant.
Vieira says France need to focus on their own display rather than ponder what might have been.
He said: “I am not sure if the referee’s position was good enough but there is nothing we can do about it now.
“We have had things go for us on a number of occasions and now we have experienced the other side.
“The bottom line is we should have killed them off. We know that. That is why we cannot complain too much about the referee.
“If we were making chances and scoring, we wouldn’t have to complain about the referee.
“We should complain about ourselves instead. When you don’t score goals, you make things difficult. It is quite difficult to take and quite frustrating.
“But we have to pick ourselves up,” he said ahead of Friday’s game with Togo, a contest France will have to win in order to stand a chance of qualifying for the knockout stages.
