World Cup 2010 Qualifying: France vs. Faroe Islands


France hosts the Faroe Islands tonight at the Stade du Roudourou with automatic qualification at stake.

Thierry Henry has urged his team-mates to do their best to get the fans back on their side. The Barcelona forward may have been toiling due to injury, but he has stated that he is ready to put himself on the line for his country.

“If we don’t go to the World Cup, everyone will suffer from it,” Henry told sport daily L’Equipe.

Les Bleus trail Serbia by four points in group seven and the Serbs can secure top spot and a place in South Africa if they win at home to Romania this evening.

UPDATE: Andre-Pierre Gignac scored twice to help France crush the Faroe Islands 5-0 and secure a playoff berth on the road to football’s biggest showcase.
