France Book Russia Spot With Belarus Win

"There was a bit of tiredness and fragility because a lot was at stake", Deschamps said. "We haven't been good to watch in qualifying, but I prefer to play badly and win".

But Didier Deschamps's side closed out the vital win, and three points at home to Belarus on Tuesday would book their ticket to Russian Federation. "We didn't have a great second half, we had few opportunities and struggled a lot". Talk in the build-up to this game had centred on a match 24 years ago when Bulgaria had denied France a place at the 1994 World Cup in the United States. "We're still first - that's important - we've got one match left and (qualification) remains in our hands, so we have to win on Tuesday".

France leads its group in the Europe Confederation with 20 points, winning six and losing just one match.

Trailing the Scandinavians by three points, only a massive victory over Sweden in Amsterdam next week will save the three-time World Cup runners-up. "I haven't had time to analyse our potential opponents, but I know they all have competitive teams". We have youngsters who have a huge amount of talent and the older players are still on it.

"We weren't necessarily used to playing together". The visitors were the better side but Kylian Mbappe and Griezmann both fired off target when well placed.

Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante has been ruled out of France's final World Cup qualifier at home to Belarus on Tuesday due to a muscle injury, national team coach Didier Deschamps has said. Kante will miss Tuesday's match, Deschamps said. But in exorcising the ghosts of 1993, France won't care a dime.
