Deschamps delighted by France performance

France boss Didier Deschamps was delighted with his side’s performance as they defeated Switzerland 5-2 on Friday to all but secure their place in the second round of the World Cup, Sky Sports has reported.

After a quiet start to match, France went in front on 20 minutes thanks to Olivier Giroud’s powerful header from a corner. Just seconds later, Blaise Matuidi doubled the advantage, latching on to Valon Behrami’s misplaced pass to fire home inside the near post.


Despite seeing a penalty saved by Diego Benaglio, France’s first half dominance continued and they made it 3-0 before the break, with Mathieu Valbuena converting from close range after a fine low cross by the impressive Giroud.


Switzerland improved in the second half, but conceded further goals to Karim Benzema and Moussa Sissoko, only for excellent strikes from Blerim Dzemaili and Granit Xhaka to give the score-line some degree of respectability for Group E’s seeded team.


Despite those two late goals from the Swiss, Deschamps hailed his side’s display in Salvador. He said: ‘That was a very good match, we did a lot of things right. We've got a group with strong opponents. We've prepared well but have to get through the match with Ecuador and then we'll start from scratch again in the next round. It's a beautiful evening.’
