It wasn't long ago that France were the best team in the world. Despite Spain winning everything, they are still the best...at being dicks! See what I did there.
That is Yann M'Vila who has almost signed for everyone in the Premier League. He's been banned from the France national team until June 2014 for going out and having a drink. Seems a bit harsh, he's French - you start drinking wine when you are seven. Yann and some other French dudes went out and got hammered while on U21 duty. Unfortunately it was before an important qualifier against Norway, which they then lost 5-4 on aggregate.
Alcohol and football don't really mix - unless your Paul Merson, or Tony Adams, or George Best, or Garrincha, or Paul McGrath, or Paul Gascoigne, or Dean Windass...they were all brilliant so maybe alcohol does work? Except for the whole dying issue.
