Moussa Sissoko played the whole game for France in Georgia on Friday night, when they could only draw 0-0, and that was the fifth consecutive game that France haven’t scored in, and with Spain winning 2-0 in Finland, the current World and European Champions are now 3 points ahead of France with only 2 games to play in Group I.
Moussa Sissoko - in action against Fulham last weekend
Moussa Sissoko was disappointed at the outcome of the game, and this is what he had to say in L’Equipe:
“During the first hour, we should have done more to raise our level – unfortunately, we did not. Why? “I do not have the answer.” “During the last thirty minutes, the team played better and faster.”
“If we had done that from the beginning, we might have been able to score.” “It’s a game to forget, and we must quickly focus on Belarus.” “We are disappointed but it’s not over.”
Georgia are a team managed by former Newcastle player Temuri Ketsbaia, and they now have 5 points from their six group games and lie second bottom of the group.
France are at Belarus on Tuesday night, and then play at home to Finland on 15th Ootber, whereas Spain host Belarus on 11th October and are then at home to Georgia four days later.
It seems the best chance that France have of qualifying for the finals next summer in Brazil, is through the knockout stage, and it would be a major upset if they do not qualify.
We just hope Moussa can remain injury free, and be available for our tough game at Aston Villa next Saturday.
