Valbuena vs. Georgia: No Contest!By: Richard | March 23rd, 2013
Valbuena out the team on his back yesterday in France’s crucial 3-1 win over Georgia which sees them top their group for World Cup qualification. To say Mathieu ran the show would be underselling it, he was making everybody look good assuming the role of the classic #10. Two assists and one goal, lets not also forget he’s scored in both previous games for France as well! So it’s not even up for discussion he’s earned his role in DD’s starting eleven and I expect to see him continue this in Brazil as well.
Valbeuna’s first assist was delivered to Oliver Giroud coming off a beautiful free kick breaking the deadlock. Early into the second half Valbeuna scored a stunner which reminded me of his wonderful goal at Anfield years ago. Shortly after he all but sealed France’s victory with a beautiful long cross to Ribery. Wonderful show from le petit velo and company, onward to next weeks match with Spain. Oh and if you feel so compelled, buy some commemorative Kahmo boxers to celebrate the win, you’ll be the cool kid on the block for sure.
