The Kurdish Globe - - SPORT -

France coach Di­dier Deschamps de­fended his team se­lec­tion af­ter Les Bleus slumped to a 1-0 home de­feat by world cham­pi­ons Spain in World Cup qual­i­fy­ing Group I on Tues­day.

Deschamps kept faith with Karim Ben­zema, who had not scored in 11 games, but the Real Madrid striker passed 1,000 min­utes with­out an in­ter­na­tional goal in an­other dis­ap­point­ing per­for­mance.

"It's a de­bate. He did good things even if ob­vi­ously he did not find the back of the net. But his team mates man­aged to find him and he took part in the con­struc­tion of the game." said Deschamps
