France beat Bulgaria 1-0 away on Saturday to move within touching distance of qualifying for next year's World Cup in Russian Federation, but Kante limped off shortly after half an hour and was replaced by Adrien Rabiot.

But Didier Deschamps's side closed out the vital win, and three points at home to Belarus on Tuesday would book their ticket to Russian Federation. Hence it is predicted that in today's match, France will gain victory against Belarus.

A crucial 1-0 win in Bulgaria secured by Blaise Matuidi's goal was more pleasing for the result than the performance and Deschamps is set to freshen up his side against Belarus, leaning towards a return to the 4-4-2 that worked so well in the 4-0 success over the Dutch at the end of August. "It was a hard match with lots of mistakes, commitment", said Deschamps, who became France's most successful coach with a 42nd victory from 68 matches since taking over the reins in 2012.

"We weren't necessarily used to playing together".

N'Golo Kanté is absent through injury while Olivier Giroud, Thomas Lemar and Kingsley Coman are set for recalls.

'New era' in solar energy fuelling growth in renewables: IEA
The IEA put much of the solar surge down to a large reduction in the cost of deployment and increased support from governments. Total solar PV capacity by then would exceed the combined total power capacities of India and Japan today, the IEA said.


It has been an uneven qualifying campaign for France, one that started with a 0-0 draw in Belarus. We also need to be effective.

But with the injured Ousmane Dembele, Paul Pogba and Benjamin Mendy still to return, Matuidi told reporters: "We have huge potential". I'm lucid enough to see we didn't control the game in Bulgaria.

"You don't get worldwide experience just like that".

France plays his place for the world Cup 2018 in the face of Belarus, on 10 October 2017.

An own goal from Johan Djourou handed Portugal the lead on 41 minutes and Andre Silva netted a second before the hour as they finished top of Group B ahead of Switzerland on goal difference. "The essential thing (winning) is there, that's what matters, but we should be able to do better".
