Georgia vs. France, 2014 World Cup qualifying: Preview and TV schedule

Ian Walton

France will need some help if they hope to move back ahead of Spain in Group I. They'll also need to win their own games as well.

After falling to Spain 1-0 in the last round of qualifiers, France now must take care of business in their remaining games and hope Spain's inconsistent form continues.

France had little trouble with Georgia in the first meeting back in March, earning a 3-1 win thanks to goals from Olivier Giroud, Mathieu Valbuena and Franck Ribery. Giroud's form has been particularly good of late with the Arsenal striker having already scored three goals for the Gunners in league play this season.

Didier Deschamps has no major injury issues to deal with and will be hoping that Finland can give his side an assist with a good result against Spain and open the door for France to reclaim the group's top spot.

Match Date/Time: 10:15 p.m. local, 2:15 p.m. ET

Venue: Dinamo Stadium, Tbilisi, Georgia

Online: ESPN3 (U.S.)
