On 15 June, he started in central midfield in the team’s first World Cup fixture – a 3–0 defeat of Honduras – suffering a foul from Wilson Palacios which led to a red card for the Honduran and a penalty kick, which was converted by Karim Benzema to give France the lead. He appeared as a substitute in the team’s second match, assisting a goal for Benzema in a 5–2 victory of Switzerland.
