Another draw for this match up!

Key moments from the match for me:

5′ Mathieu with France’s first shot but it goes over. Good link-up play from Digne and Cabella to set it up.

13′ Cabella wins a corner and he takes it. It’s low and Sissoko’s header couldn’t get to it as it bounces past him. An unmarked Pogba is at the end of it and he slots it home for the lead. His 4th for France.

Euro 2016 qualifiers have kicked off. I’m currently watching Georgia v Ireland drawing at 1-1 at HT.

Serbia hosts Les Bleus in an hour and 45 minutes time in a friendly. Being hosts, France are excused from official qualifiers.

In their last 4 meetings, the French won thrice and drew once.

ALLEZ LES BLEUS!

The besties!

Bonne chance Benz!

Highlights: France v Spain

Watch the highlight of France’s 1-0 victory over Spain last evening here:

France has QUALITY in every position; from the goalie keeping the post to the outfield players. It’s just a matter of time before DD gets it right and everything falls into place.

As for Costa, all he needs is time to adapt although I think his quality suits Brazil more and tell the coach to get his own style!

ALLEZ LES BLEUS!
