Go figure, France is counting on Zidane

France is having a hard time getting to Germany, but they are all counting on superstar Zinedine Zidane to save them.

"Playmaker Zinedine Zidane's return to the squad has boosted confidence and the change of mood in the camp was evident in the smile on the face of the normally stern Domenech.

'Something has changed in the squad since he made his comeback,' said striker Djibril Cisse. 'It's not like before. It seems more calm, more relaxed.'"

Their big test will be next Wednesday when they visit group leader Ireland. If Zidane can lead his squad to a victory that night, his dream of seeing another World Cup will be extremely likely.

However, if he fails, I think the French side will be crushed.
