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.

"I can't count on him for the next game".

France host Belarus in their final World Cup qualifier on Tuesday evening knowing victory at the Stade de France will guarantee a place at the FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation. "We didn't have a great second half, we had few opportunities and struggled a lot". "We're still first - that's important - we've got one match left and (qualification) remains in our hands, so we have to win on Tuesday". France had been cruising at the top of their World Cup qualifying group but conceded two goals in the final seven minutes to lose 3-2 at home to Israel, meaning they had to avoid defeat in the final game, at home to Bulgaria.

It's a crucial match for the French, with a sure first place spot and World Cup berth clinched with the win.

By the end of 2016, China had increased its solar PV capacity by almost 800 times, with more than 77 gigawatts now installed. Along with India and the U.S. , the three will be responsible for two-thirds of renewables expansion by 2022.


France is now first in Group A of the competition with 20 points but does not have a ticket secured to Russian Federation just yet. "I haven't had time to analyse our potential opponents, but I know they all have competitive teams".

Michael Skibbe's side are nearly certain to finish second as they host pointless Gibraltar in their last game on Tuesday, although they could still miss out on the play-offs as the worst second-placed team. In the final match of the selection for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, the Belarusian national team will face France. "The fans will be right behind us, as was already the case when we played the Netherlands in the stadium".
