France out to complete World Cup job

France out to complete World Cup job

France kept their noses in front in the European Group A race to qualify for the 2018 World Cup as Blaise Matuidi's early strike earned a 1-0 win in Bulgaria on Saturday.

The team France is in the first place with 20 points and the team Belarus is in the fifth place with five points in the standing table of Group A UEFA World Cup Qualifying.

What is the team news for France vs Belarus? As long as France perform competently and treat Belarus seriously, there should be no problem.

"We had to fight to the end and play like men!"

N'Golo Kanté is absent through injury while Olivier Giroud, Thomas Lemar and Kingsley Coman are set for recalls. A repeat of that result would leave the door ajar for Sweden, provided the Swedes are able to win away to the Netherlands.

Pogba's absence should not be an issue against Belarus, and the visitors will surely arrive with little hope of collecting anything from the contest. I don't ask my team to go out there and wait and see what happens. Belarus does not have much to play for in this game but France will look to obtain the win that will secure a first-place finish. "We must be aggressive from the start", Lloris told a news conference. "You can't obtain worldwide experience just by clicking the fingers".

An own goal from Johan Djourou handed Portugal the lead on 41 minutes and Andre Silva netted a second before the hour as they finished top of Group B ahead of Switzerland on goal difference. The venue of the match is at Stade de France, Saint-Denis, Seine-Saint-Denis. "It's a special game for the whole team because it's our last chance to take points and prove to everybody that we're capable of competing against very good opposition".
