The Atletico Madrid playamker has become a huge star in France after leading Didier Deschamps ' side to the final of Euro 2016.

The match will be held in Belarus. In the final set to win many of the host country, however, the French fell face in the dirt, losing the final against Portugal 1: 0. This was not the case. In the second half, we did everything right - except score.

Overnight, against international minnows Belarus, he was handed the chance of improving that number even further.

France, runners-up at this year's European Championship, dominated the match but could find no way through with Olivier Giroud wasting their best opportunities.

Greece then added three more goals between the 44th minute and the halftime whistle.

Historically, France have struggled to qualify directly for a World Cup.

I am pretty sure, though, that the Arsenal forward will be hoping to start and play well for France tonight as they take on Belarus in a World Cup qualifier.

But instead, the beaten Euro 2016 finalists were unable to breach a determined Belarus defence that dug deep to secure a seventh clean sheet in the last nine games.
