Thoughts on the 2010 FIFA World Cup: H.E. Francois Pujolas, Consul General of France

What is your message to the football team and what are your views on South Africa hosting the FIFA World Cup?

May the best team win! After the Rugby World Cup of 1995, we are happy to be back in South Africa for this major sports event.

How far do you think your team will advance?

Similar to where it had reached in 2006 but with a much happier outcome this time!

Who according to you are the top 3 favourite teams to win the FIFA World Cup in South Africa?

I have only one favourite and I don’t need to specify it (smiles).

Who is your  favourite to win the “Golden Boot” award?

There are many talented players. Football, like any other sports competition, is unpredictable. It is difficult to choose a favourite.
