Despite being one of the favourites for UEFA EURO
2008, France were unceremoniously dumped out of the competition in
the first round.
Veteran France defender Lilian Thuram confirmed his
international retirement on Tuesday following France's first
round exit from EURO 2008.
France coach Raymond Domenech has praised his side for the way
they reacted to a series of "catastrophes" in their 2-0
EURO loss to Italy.
