There’s no Maginot Line in the sky that can protect France’s World Cup team from the all-seeing eyes of drones.
French Coach Didier Deschamps alleges that a drone has been spying on his team’s practices. The former star player for France’s 1998 World Cup team confirms that the matter remains under investigation by FIFA.
“Apparently drones are used more and more,” Deschamps told reporters. “It’s not up to me. FIFA handles this and has been carrying out an inquiry. We don’t want any intrusion into our privacy. It’s very hard to fight this these days.”
Deschamps does not know the people, or three-government outfit, behind the controls of the drone. CIA? MI6? SVR? Magnum PI? France plays in Group E three countries–Ecuador, Honduras, and Switzerland–not particularly known for prowess in the skies.
France takes on Honduras Sunday at 3 p.m. Eastern.
