The France football team faces, Friday, Nov. 15, at the Olympic Stadium in Kiev Ukraine in a qualifying leg off for World Cup 2014. Nothing will be sealed after the first inning, but the Blues would be well advised to get a good result in the Ukrainian capital, to avoid cold sweats Tuesday, November 19 Stade de France, in the second leg.

"It will take a lot of commitment. There is no room for doubt, uncertainty or question, "said the French coach Didier Deschamps told reporters. "We'll play there [in Ukraine, Ed], with the intention of making the best possible result. We will not go there to defend well, with a restrictive spirit, "said he added, ensuring that his team should have the ambition" to create chances and score. " ,

All ingredients that had failed in the France team There are four years against Ireland during the 2010 World Cup dams. Beaten 1-0 in the first leg in Dublin, Ireland had led to the Stade de France, in front of the Blues, as stunned and saved by the goal after William Gallas the famous hand of Thierry Henry. The last memory of dams therefore urges caution.

The unbeaten France against Ukraine

Otherwise also be feared that Portugal, another play-offs that France could face, Ukraine, unbeaten in 11 games, but never managed to dominate France seven face-to-face, is a strong opponent. Ukrainians have finished second in their group behind England, cashing only four goals in ten matches, without a slump when his coach has changed, it may already have got his ticket to Brazil.

Composed almost entirely of local players, Ukraine will the Blues will have a rough opposition and, at the forefront on two clearly identified hazards, and Andrei Larmolenko Yehven Konoplyanka. If the Blues are able to neutralize these two players, a big step towards Brazil will be done. He will force the defense to lock, and for this, France relies primarily on Franck Ribery, in search of his first Ballon d'Or.

"This is a very important player," he told Didier Deschamps. "One of the best players in the world, if not the best this year," added Blaise Matuidi, who said that the two play-off were the most important of the Sixties e, because "at the end, there is Brazil."

But beyond the prospect of playing World Cup football in the country-king, the French football mauled by multiple business in recent years [Knysna, Zahia, quotas, trip Prospects, Nasri Evra …] has a deplorable to restore to the public picture. Didier Deschamps has understood: Only victories can reverse this trend. And two years of Euro-2016, held in France, the absence of the next final phase, which would be a first for the Blues since the World-94, definitely plunge the Federation French football in a deep crisis.
