Magical France secure historic win

France boss Didier Deschamps believes Les Bleus has enjoyed the “magic of football” as they created history by securing their place at next year’s World Cup.

Didier Deschamps is thrown into the air after masterminding France's comeback against Ukraine.

France became the first European nation to overcome a two-goal first-leg deficit when they rallied to beat 10-man Ukraine 3-0 in the conclusion of their World Cup play-off in Paris.

And Deschamps hailed his players performance as they showed “heart and enthusiasm” to book their spot in Brazil.

“It's the magic of football,” Deschamps told TF1. “Four days ago we were bad, very bad, but the players responded well. Tonight we played very well.

“It was very important for French football that we are in Brazil next summer. We will be there, that is very good.

“We were up against a good team and we showed a lot of heart and enthusiasm. When you have these basic ingredients, you can achieve good things.”

France attacker Franck Ribery echoed his manager’s sentiments, believing France had “realised something extraordinary” against Ukraine.

"It's beautiful, amazing, we realised something extraordinary," the 30-year-old told TF1. "The fans have been with us. We suffered so much sorrow, and this is great, beautiful.

"It's been a long time since I have seen this kind of support at Stade de France. We had a good slap in Ukraine and tonight it was tense to the end.

"We are very happy, very happy to go to our clubs like this. This would have been difficult not to go to Brazil. We played with our guts and everyone had fun."

Meanwhile, goal scorer Mamadou Sakho said the spirit of the team helped them fight back from the first-leg loss.

“I am happy. The team spirit was there,” Sakho said. “My first (sic) goal gave us hope and we were all together in the dressing room, you need that collective spirit.

“We also have to acknowledge the fans who cheered us on. All the French public were behind the team.”
