Sarkozy brings political guns to bear on revolting French players

That probably means we can now call it a national crisis. French President Nicolas Sarkozy enlisted his sports minister to help bring peace to his country's World Cup squad, which looks like it is out of the tournament with or without Mexico's help. On Sunday night sports minister Roselyne Bachelot said Sarkozy had asked her to stay on in the country and meet wit the various factions in the team. The government has already come out in strong condemnation for what they call the unprofessional conduct of the revolting players. Reuters
