Polokwane - France defender Patrice Evra gave a damning verdict on his team after its 2-0 World Cup defeat to Mexico, saying he feels like France has become "a small football nation, and it hurts."

Thursday's defeat leaves France with only one point from two games in Group A, and on the brink of elimination from the World Cup ahead of next week's final group matches, because both Mexico and Uruguay have four points each.
Evra said he felt "deeply upset, even if it won't change anything" and France's captain says "we're not a great team" and that it was "a huge catastrophe tonight."
France was eliminated from the European Championship two years ago at the group stage without winning a match.
