Deschamps Asking France Players to Avoid Spanish Distraction

France national team won’t be playing any World Cup 2014 qualifying match on Friday, but Didier Deschamps’ men will be set for a big clash on Tuesday against Spain.

Preparing for that upcoming midweek battle, Les Blues will play in a friendly against Japan this Friday and Deschamps expect his players to focus on that game instead of thinking about Spain.

Furthermore, the ex-Marseille tactician also thinks that playing in a friendly before the big match against Spain won’t give any disadvantage for France, although Deschamps would prefer to play the friendly after the World Cup qualifying game.
