European World Cup qualifying - how France can make it to Russia
The final rounds of qualifying for the 2018 World Cup take place between Oct. 5 and Oct. 10.
The nine group winners qualify automatically with the other four places decided by playoffs between the eight best runners-up.
Group A: 1. France, 17 points (a-Bulgaria, h-Belarus)
Les Bleus will need to win both games to be sure of a direct passage, with the trip to Bulgaria -- who must win themselves -- on Oct. 7 looking crucial.
