The defeat of the French team in Denmark (2-0) on Sunday in the Nations League final will mark the qualification for the next Euro 2024 since the Blues will not be seeded in the draw.
A miniscule slimming ran through the evening of the France team on Sunday. Despite the defeat in Denmark (2-0), the Blues remained in League A of the League of Nations, taking advantage of Croatia’s victory in Austria (1-3). And this is the only good news of the night for Didier Deschamps’ men, sidelined for their last match before the World Cup.

This will take place on Sunday, October 9 in Frankfurt and will be based on the final classification of the teams in the group stage of the League of Nations.
France already out of the Top 10
