France Players Recreate 'The Wolf of Wall Street' Scene in World Cup Training

Mark PattersonUK Staff WriterJuly 4, 2014

France face Germany for a place in the World Cup semi-finals on Friday.

As part of their preparations, some of the team were spotted chest-thumping, recreating a scene from The Wolf of Wall Street.

You can compare the two scenes here:

Rio Mavuba, who has only played 25 minutes at the World Cup so far, appears to be leading the thumps. 

It's fair to say the scenes look happier than they were back in 2010, when France were dumped out in the group stage and flew home in acrimony.
