FranceÂ’s national coach Raymond Domenech is under extreme pressure at present to keep his job.

After a poor Euro 2008 and his early 1 – 3 loss on Saturday to Austria in Group Seven, a team ranked just beyond 100 in the world rankings, time must be running out for the coach.

Prior to the match against Austria the French Federation had given the fifty six year old Domenech a target of five points in the first three matches. With the loss on Saturday this becomes two victories in two matches, the first of which will be on Wednesday against Serbia.

Domenech has been in charge of the French national side since 2004 and was himself a French international who played as a defender.
