we beat, they beat, he beats, who wins ...
Wow I read that and I have no idea what point you are making :)
Its easy. If Piri hadn't injured himself in the warmup, and had slotted all his kicks, the ABs would've had a more convincing scoreline :-)
The better team DID win on the day. If France had been good enough to win, why couldn't they breach the stoic ABs defense when they needed to?
