France face a very tough second leg tie against Ukraine on Tuesday night in Paris, to qualify for the World Cup next summer in Brazil, and they will need to score at least two goals in that game to have any chance of qualifying, after losing the first leg 2-0 in Kyiv on Friday night.
Loic Remy scores again for Newcastle
In that game Matthieu Debuchy was one of France’s best players, blocking at least two goal bound shots in that first half, and he has today praised his Newcastle and French team-mate and striker Loic Remy, who has scored 7 goals for the Magpies in just nine appearances for the side this season.
This is what Mathieu said today:
“Since Loic came to Newcastle, we are really good.” “He scored again last weekend at Tottenham Hotspur, he moves and fights a lot. This is an intelligence, he has a sense of purpose and he wants to score, which is important for an attacker.”
Loic is on a season long loan at Newcastle, after he turned us down for QPR, of all cubs, in January – after they offered him huge wages to sign for them.
And the better Loic plays for Newcastle the less chance we will have of signing the striker in the summer, since some big clubs are already taking notice of his Newcastle goal-scoring form, in one of the toughest football leagues in the world.
Let’s see if Remy can help make it competitive on Tuesday night for France in Paris, against an extremely solid and under-rated Ukrainian side, who have won nine of eleven games this year, drawn the other two, and not conceded a goal in the last eight games. 🙁
