Les Bleus have set up a busy international break in October, with a newly scheduled friendly against Ukraine on the 7th to go with the Nationals League clashes against Portugal (11 October) and Croatia (14 October).
After long months of absence, Les Bleus returned to action in September with victories over Sweden (0-1) and Croatia (4-2). Didier Deschamps' men will have an even busier programme in October, as they will have to play three matches in the space of a week.
In addition to their Stade de France duel with Portugal for top spot in the group (11 October) and another clash with World Cup final opponents Croatia in Zagreb (14 October), Didier Deschamps' players will also play host to Ukraine at the Stade de France on 7 October (kick-off at 21:10) in a friendly. The news was made official this Wednesday morning.
