France surprised everyone in their opening World Cup European Qualifier after being held to a 1-1 draw at home to Ukraine
So despite boasting a plethora of footballing stars within their squad.
Such a result will have not been fondly looked upon by French supporters, along with manager Didier Deschamps and a response will be expected from the reigning World Champions away vs Kazakhstan.
September 2020 was the last time the hosts won a competitive international fixture
With Kazakhstan having drawn one and lost four of their last five games since then, all in the UEFA Nations League.
When is Kazakhstan vs France taking place? Sunday 28th March, 2021 – 14:00 (UK)
Where is Kazakhstan vs France taking place? Astana Arena, Nur-Sultan

What television channel is Kazakhstan vs France on? Sky Sports

Whilst France may have a little physical fatigue to contend with when taking into account the short turnaround of fixtures combined with the long journey to Kazakhstan
That will prove no excuse when taking into account the standard of their squad and anything less than a comprehensive away victory
By at least two clear goals alongside a clean sheet would be considered a disappointment for them.
