In typical France fashion, France played some pretty lame football en route to a 1-0 win over an inferior opponent on Friday. While a home game against Belarus presents a little bit less of a challenge than a game away to Finland, fans should expect something similar on Tuesday in Paris.
Unfortunately, the goal scorer from that Finland game, Abou Diaby, picked up a knock and probably isn't going to play. His career has been plagued by injuries, so hopefully he's back in action shortly. Blaise Matuidi and Etienne Capoue started that match on the bench and could come into replace Diaby. Laurent Blanc might consider making some other changes as well, considering how dull his side looked in their first qualifier.
