Re: Match 18|France vs. Mexico|17-06-10|Play-by-Play Thread [R] Apparently you don't follow CONCACAF qualifying, it always comes down to the last 2 games. FWIW France needed a late goal to beat Costa Rica in France a month ago. And what did France have to do to qualify besides losing to Serbia and squeaking past mighty Ireland? Oh yes, they finished ahead of Austria, the 68th ranked team in the world. Don't blame CONCACAF for UEFA's lousy qualifying system.
