The 2010 World Cup in South Africa is certainly one to forget for anyone who’s French. Patrice Evra and Nicolas Anelka persuaded their team-mates to revolt against the reported inept management of then boss Raymond Domenech.
After barricading themselves aboard and refusing to train, the France team and their bus was the centre of attention, but for all the wrong reasons. Frankly, it was embarrassing and utterly unprofessional.
With Didier Deschamps at the helm and a reported change in attitude around camp though, Adidas decided to exercise the demons of South Africa 2010 by destroying the aforementioned team bus in style ahead of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
