France’s football team is facing off against Germany’s national team in a World Cup qualifier on Sunday in a match that could determine the outcome of the 2017 World Cup.
The final game of the season will be played in front of a sellout crowd at Stade de France on Sunday night.
France’s players will play Germany in a friendly on Tuesday, and then host Brazil on Tuesday.
The team has already been beaten on the international stage, but it has also been a major surprise, with the French losing all three matches in Group C. Germany won the match in their last home game of 2017 against England, and the team is now 2-2-0 against Germany, but will have to bounce back against the French in the final game to take a lead in the group.
In the past, the team has struggled to win in front in the stadium, but the French players say they feel they can overcome their own shortcomings to win.
“We have a very good group of players,” said Lamine Kone, France’s captain, when asked if the team could bounce back and win.
“We are all united in that we have the experience of being a team with a history of success.”
The players are expected to be out of shape after training for three days on Monday, and some are feeling the effects of the World Cup fever.
According to French newspaper Le Parisien, the players will be forced to rest up after the match.
France’s captain has been one of the most vocal critics of the team’s performance during the World Series.
Kone said that the team should have won the 2017 game in the second half.
“In the first half, we didn’t play our best game,” Kone told Le Parisian.
“That was because we had no rhythm.
We played with too much speed and we were not able to defend well.”
According, the German coach, Joachim Loewen, said that he was “disappointed” that France failed to get the result in the first game of their 2017 World Series, and called on the players to work on their “mental and physical preparation” for the match on Monday.
