Yann M’Vila Injured During France Friendly, Leaves Pitch In Floods Of Tears (Video)

By Chris Wright

This is horrible to watch (almost as horrible as Grant Holt’s grammar). France midfielder Yann M’Vila pulled up injured after spraining his ankle just four minutes into a friendly against Serbia  – the game that played host to this 98kph Florent Malouda screamer – last night and hobbled off in floods of tears and sat weeping on the bench knowing that his Euro 2012 may have just gone down the toilet…

After the game M’Vila told L’Equipe:

“We will let things run their course, and hopefully I’ll be ready for June 11th (France’s opening game), God willing. I’m able to put my foot down on the floor, but I still have to walk with crutches, just in case. There is time to heal before the Euros.”

You don’t need us to tell you that it’d be a real kick in the nads to see M’Vila ruled out. With an ever-burgeoning reputation and a move to Arsenal said to be in the offing, the lad’s now primed for a starring role in front of the French back four this summer. Fingers crossed that a frustratingly minor and ill-timed injury doesn’t rob him of that.

    Hope it isn’t a serious one

  2. Toz says:

    Why is France playing in all blue? The victorious French teams of yesteryear always wore white shorts, red socks and blue tops. Fecking Nike…

  3. Scott Mac says:

    @Toz maybe because the French refer to themselves as “Les Bleus”.

    That would be UEFA’s doing. Same reason Holland are in all orange, Portugal in all red, ect.

  5. Matt says:

    Feel terrible for the lad, thats the kind of passion france need after two terrible back to back tournaments. Best of luck to him.

  6. MGJ says:

    I thought he was meant to be the France “hardman”. Man up!

  7. Jarren says:

    @MGJ: Man up? He was looking forward to playing for his country in a major tournament.

    That dream may now be shattered.

    What would you rather he did, nonchalantly swagger down the tunnel with a “fuck it, who cares” look on his face?

  8. MGJ says:

    There is always someone who does not get a joke…

  9. Jarren says:

    @MGJ: Sorry mate, I get sarcasm as much as the next man.

    In fact, it is something I thrive upon.

    However, we are online. That means some hints must be dropped in order to express sarcasm.

    Most commonly, this could be a ;) after a sentence.

    In some cases something can be said that is so absurd that it can only be taken for sarcasm, but in your instance an emoticon was needed.

    *gets offended by a remark on the internet that didn’t realise was sarcastic*

    You’re THAT guy.

  11. MGJ says:

    Oh I am sorry Jarren I did not realise you had re-written the rules on how to write in english. (Insert emoticon if you wish)
