A point clear of Sweden a the top of Group A, the UEFA EURO 2016 finalists have matters in their own hands and a near-capacity crowd is expected in the Paris suburbs to roar Les Bleus towards a World Cup berth.

That saw the Swedes temporarily move into top spot but victory means France know that three points at home to Belarus on Tuesday will book their place in Russian Federation.

Providing a cause for France's people to unite behind during some tough cultural times, Deschamps says that the supporters were just as vital to the win over Belarus as his players.

France has been a dominant team in this competition for the most part but has suffered some disappointing results like a 2-1 loss against Sweden and scoreless draws against Luxembourg and Belarus.

N'Golo Kanté is absent through injury while Olivier Giroud, Thomas Lemar and Kingsley Coman are set for recalls. In the past five head to head records between these two teams, France won three games and two matches ended in a draw. I don't ask my team to go out there and wait and see what happens. "We must be aggressive from the start", Lloris told a news conference. Belarus does not have much to play for in this game but France will look to obtain the win that will secure a first-place finish.

When we will be champions of the world, the 15 July, we will have a little thought for the evening as the one just experienced.

The Dutch needed a victory in Barysaw to keep alive any hopes of a top-two finish, but despite a third goal in two games from Brighton and Hove Albion midfielder Davy Propper, Belarus equalised through Maksim Volodjko.

France plays his place for the world Cup 2018 in the face of Belarus, on 10 October 2017. "The essential thing (winning) is there, that's what matters, but we should be able to do better".
