The French authority for radio and TV regulations and survey decided to impose sanctions against the M6 TV station, which broadcast live the Romania - France (0:0) football game, given the fact that a journalist referred to the Romanian national team as "hen thieves" (Fr.: "voleurs de poules").

Journalist Dominique Grimault said during the "100% foot" show that the Romanian players are nothing but petty thieves. The CSA (the authority for radio and TV regulations and survey) reacted promptly, describing the language as offensive and discriminatory.

The game reached an audience of 9.6 million viewers, which is an absolute first for M6.
