The referee waved a red card at the French player, ejecting him from the game for a nasty, elbow foul. His coach buried his head in his hands.
Soon after, South Africa put the French out of their misery with a 2-1 victory, and France's World Cup humiliation was complete.
France's multimillionaire players embarrassed themselves and their nation by rebelling against their coach and the French Football Federation, even taking the extraordinary step of going on strike.
It would be different if they were there representing themselves, but they were at the World Cup representing their Country, who they let down!
