France won this Saturday in Sofia by the minimum (0-1) against Bulgaria and guaranteeed at least a square in the repechage for the World-wide 2018 in Russia, to the fault of the last meeting the next Tuesday. The ones of Deschamps did not shine in excess
France carried the victory in Bulgaria thanks to a tempranero goal of Matuidi, that sent the ball at the end of the network of the door of Iliev after a pass of Griezmann. The ones of Deschamps sufficed with this solitary target to win, seeding doubts with a flat and very predictable game. They will have to improve to be candidates to the title.
The Barcelona Umtiti and Digne were headlines and made a remarkable meeting. The central formed couple with Varane in the saga and prevented that Delev could give the turn as it is usual. The left side covered well his band and read to perfection how and when go up to the attack.
The second half passed without surprises, although the French abandoned his dynamics of game whereas the Bulgarian tried to restart the initiative, although in vain. With the victory of Sweden against Luxembourg, the fight by the first position in the group To for the World-wide follows opened, whereas Holland is supported by life in the group To thanks to a victory out of house against Byelorussia.
"It is clear that the game has not been the best, but is important to have added the three points because in this group all is equalised. It remains us a commitment more and want to win to go directly to the World-wide. To attain it will have fulfilled our aim", stood out Deschamps, seleccionador French, in room of press.
