Luxembourg defied the odds to pull off a shock result against France, holding Didier Deschamps’ side to a 0-0 draw in Toulouse.
France’s World Cup qualifying campaign suffered an unexpected blow as Didier Deschamps’ side were held to a 0-0 draw by Luxembourg.
Luc Holtz’s minnows, ranked 136th by FIFA, battled tirelessly to earn arguably the most impressive result in the country’s history in Toulouse, keeping a star-studded France line-up full of attacking prowess at bay.
The hosts peppered the Luxembourg goal with shots throughout the contest and Antoine Griezmann rattled the crossbar with a first-half free-kick, while Kylian Mbappe tormented defenders with his pace.
But Luxembourg goalkeeper Jonathan Joubert had the game of his life, pulling off a string of world-class saves to deny the likes of Paul Pogba and Djibril Sidibe when they looked certain to score.
