FRANCE ARE ON the brink of missing out on next year’s World Cup as they look to overturn a 2-0 first leg defeat to Ukraine in Paris tonight.

While Didier Deschamps’ squad includes talents such as Franck Ribery, Karim Benzema, Patrice Evra and Hugo Lloris, they were second best in Kiev and face an uphill battle at the Stade de France.

A recent poll in Le Parisien shows the French public has lost faith in their underachievers and fans will no doubt turn on the team if things don’t go well.

Four years have passed since Thierry Henry’s infamous handball against Ireland, so are you hoping France qualify for next year’s finals? 

Poll Results:

I don't care either way (999)
No. Let them see how it feels to miss out (818)
Yes. I want to see the best players on show at the World Cup (170)
