Bulgaria vs France World Cup Qualifying UEFA Venue, Kick-off Time, Predicted Lineups

Bulgaria vs France World Cup Qualifying UEFA Venue, Kick-off Time, Predicted Lineups

There is also history between the two nations, as the last time France failed to qualify for the World Cup was in 1994 following a late defeat to Bulgaria in qualifying.

France were off to a flying start as a flowing team move ended with Antoine Griezmann teeing up Matuidi to blast home from a tight angle on three minutes.

The early kick off in Group A saw Sweden keep the pressure up on group leaders France with an 8-0 thrashing of Luxembourg, with Marcus Berg scoring four and captain Andreas Granqvist netting twice from the penalty spot.

France lost N'Golo Kante do an apparent hamstring injury in the 33rd minute, and Hungary almost equalised a few minutes later, only for Hugo Lloris to make a tremendous diving save to deny Georgi Kostadinov.

France, who face Belarus in Paris on Tuesday, will be confident of collecting the necessary points, and while qualification is still far from a formality, Les Bleus were in relaxed mood as they geared up for the clash at the Vasil Levski Stadium.

Meanwhile, in the same group Arjen Robben scored one goal and set up another as the Netherlands kept alive their slender hopes of reaching the finals with a 3-1 victory over Belarus.

The hosts took the lead within 10 minutes as Ola Toivonen was fouled in the box by Christopher Martins Pereira and Andreas Granqvist stepped up to slot home. Those results mean the likes of Scotland, Wales and the Republic of Ireland (the latter two face off in a victor takes all meeting on Monday) will be guaranteed a playoff place if they win their final games.

'They have a quality to play through rapid counter-attacks. There's no one player who makes the difference. The Dutch can no longer top the group and would need to beat Sweden by seven goals when the two meet on Tuesday to finish second and have any hope of a playoff place.

The goal finally came in the 63rd minute when Ildefonso Lima could only get a slight touch to Joao Mario's cross, and the ball fell to Ronaldo to score.

"The essential thing (winning) is there, that's what matters, but we should be able to do better".

Thomas Meunier had put Belgium in front after just four minutes, but goals from Haris Medunjanin on the half-hour and Edin Visca after 39 minutes put the hosts ahead going into the break.

Greece are in second place, two points clear of Bosnia-Herzegovina.
