On Wednesday, in Paris ,an indifferent English team was beaten in an indifferent match by France ,1-0
David Beckham , on his 100th appearance ,performed adequately during the game but performed so much better afterwards pitching brand Beckham in interviews. Modest, charming, articulate with the rehearsed pride in ‘my’ country.
However he was outshone in London by the sensational new French pitch team of President Nicolas Sarkozy and Carla Bruni-Sarkozy.
No doubt important things were said and the phrase ‘ entente amicale’ resonates. However their success and the impact they made was our response to what we saw (sensed). His infectious energy and lively body language and her seemingly effortless sense of style capitivated us.
