France hungry for victory - Ambassador

2:52 pm on 21 October 2011

The French Ambassador to New Zealand says the team is hungry for a victory in the Rugby World Cup.

Francis Etienne says the team has come close to winning before and he's hoping inspiration will touch them both before and during the game on Sunday night.

He told Morning Report there's no denying the Al Blacks are favourites, but everybody wants to see a real final and a great game.

Mr Etienne expects about 13 million people in France to watch the game, so it's a very big deal there.
