France vs. Romania Player ratings

Player ratings after France's 0-0 draw with Romania on Monday in the European Championship:
France
Gregory Coupet: 6. Had little to do but did it without fuss. Never tested.
Willy Sagnol: 5. Looked short of fitness and ideas. Caught out of position several times.
Lilian Thuram: 6. Veteran defender looked solid as ever.
William Gallas: 6. Made crucial block of shot from Adrian Mutu early on.
Eric Abidal: 5. Failed to get forward to help Florent Malouda on left. No quality crosses.
Franck Ribery: 6. Managed a few times to break through Romanian defense, but not quite his best.
Claude Makelele: 7. Old legs held firm. His usual tenacious self throughout.
Jeremy Toulalan: 7. Used the ball intelligently to keep pressure off France defense.
Florent Malouda: 6. Had one great run, but shot missed target. Protected flank well.
Nicolas Anelka: 5. Missed a chance to shine in Thierry Henry's absence. Missed game's best chance.
Karim Benzema: 5. Underperformed in his first match on biggest stage. Showed flashes of his talent.
Bafetimbi Gomis (for Anelka in 72nd): 6. Added energy that Anelka lacked. Had little support.
Samir Nasri (for Benzema in 77th): No rating.
Romania
Bogdan Lobont: 6. Had to come out once to save with his feet. Was otherwise not tested.
Cosmin Contra: 6. Advanced the ball quickly, but was beaten once by Malouda. Cautioned.
Gabriel Tamas: 7. Was a rock in the center of the Romania defense. Gave Anelka and Benzema nothing.
Dorin Goian: 7. Same as Tamas.
Razvan Rat: 5. The weak link of the Romania defense. Beaten by Ribery and Anelka, but was bailed out.
Razvan Cocis: 5. Didn't put enough pressure on midfield and struggled to contend with Makelele.
Mirel Radoi: 6. Performed his defensive duties aptly. Offered little in attack.
Cristian Chivu: 7. Marshaled Romania's stifling defense in unusual midfield role. Strong on ball. Good distribution.
Banel Nicolita: 5. Ineffective.
Adrian Mutu: 6. Romania's biggest threat lacked support. Getting closer to match fitness.
Daniel Niculae: 6. Started brightly and held up ball well, strong in air. Disappeared in second half.
Paul Codrea (for Cocis in 64th): 6. Applied more pressure than Cocis.
Marius Niculae (for Mutu in 78th): No rating.
Nicolae Dica (for Radoi in 90th): No rating.
