France lose World Cup sponsor

France’s World Cup campaign has received another blow after one of their partners, Credit Agricole Bank, suspended their sponsorship of the striking side.

The French squad refused to train on Sunday in protest of star striker Nicolas Anelka’s sending home from South Africa following a foul-mouthed rant at coach Raymond Domenach.

Fellow sponsor Adidas has pledged to continue supporting France as long as they remain in the competition.

Back home the French press and politicians have condemned their national side, accusing them of shaming the whole country.
