Statement - Algat Baisufinov (Coach of Kazakhstan)

"I'm glad Didier Deschamps praised us. We want to enjoy soccer. We want to show our game to the opponent. That's how we found our strongest game. We lost our game in October. That's why we want to bring that game back. This match is very important for France. Their goal is to go to the World Cup. But we are not in a position to look at the glory of the opponent. It will be a game that will give a lot of confidence to the new players.

"Obviously, this will give us additional inspiration. However, it is important for us to show our game. The rest we have nothing to do. When our group was formed, we listened to expert opinion. After 5 rounds, we even had a chance to get the second place. But in October we lost hope in two games. We need to repeat the game we showed at the beginning of the year. The most important thing for us is the stability of the game."

"Let's remember the matches against Ukraine. Especially our defensive game has changed. We gave a lot of opportunities to attack the opponent. However, we often attacked. We tried to show an open game. In the meantime, there were games when we changed the style of play and relied on defense."

Statement - Didier Deschamps (France coach)

"It's often a dangerous road to qualify on the last date. It's up to us. Is it more rewarding than other qualifiers? I don't know. This match is fundamental because the France team must be in the World Cup."

"The first match against Kazakhstan was not easy. We studied their two games in October. The choice of the system is well defined. It's a team that has this ability to defend. They do everything they can to defend, it's a block. They have the ability to never give up, they got two draws in stoppage time. They're going to play hard."

"The best vitamin is winning. The pride of having done what we did in October against two great nations. This doesn't make us want to relax, but the France team has shown, beyond the soccer quality, that there is spirit."

Key player - France

In the French team, the presence of Antoine Griezman stands out. The Atlético Madrid striker is one of the many options Didier Deschamps has to play in the attacking front. His quality is unquestionable and his goal-scoring ability is the main feature to take into account.

1:20 PM2 months ago


France come into this matchday after being crowned in the UEFA Nations League and with a certain peace of mind about their first place. Only a real catastrophe could knock them out of first place in the group.
